This discussion was started becaus Sebastien Bacher asked for it.


Hello, now that the default DPI is asked to X, it's no more '96' as it
used to be in intrepid. This means that if I have a 1440x900
resolution, my DPI is set to 121.
This is really a good thing because now fonts look exactly the same on
every monitor, not depending on the resolution.

I have to say that the gnome default font size (which is 10) is too
big. it looks really huge!

A default value of 8 should be ok, in my opinion
What do you think of this change?
