hello all,

i've downloaded the ubuntu title font and i don't wish to sound rude,
but it's a little rough around the edges. i was using it in inkscape
and i noticed that some of the letters aren't very smooth.

on closer inspection some of the letters have way more nodes than are
neccesary for the shape of the letter. all these extra nodes add
irregularities to the outline of the letters and spoil their
smoothness. the letter "u" is a good example of this, it uses 22 nodes
to draw the letter, when only 10 are needed (i checked).

does anyone know if these letters were designed on a computer program
or were they drawn by hand and then converted?
