In April and May 2006 there was some discussion on this list about the
fonts used in Ubuntu.
Currently the DejaVu fonts are already being shipped with Ubuntu, but
why are they not yet the default fonts? DejaVu covers a greater range of
Unicode than the other fonts, so why not make DejaVu the default font?
That would also allow Ubuntu to stop shipping so many different fonts,
why have 10+ different fonts which look more or less the same if there
is one font which is the best choice?
