I agree.  I generally find the fonts in Ubuntu a little too big and 
spindly.  I really like the typography in this 
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=31128 mockup - second 
image down especially.  Tactful use of fullcaps & bold are nice.  It 
also makes things look less cluttered when they are smaller.

We need to be nice to the short-sighted old folks though.  I've found 
they have quite a lot of problems when it comes to reading small text - 
maybe an alternate theme the same, but designed for high visibility 
would be an idea too?
