It may be obvious that I'm concentrating on the terminal use case here,<br>to the arguable exclusion of the (more common) graphical user interface<br>case. The main reason I'm doing that is that I perceive the benefit to
<br>the general desktop case to be aesthetic rather than functional, and the<br>degredation to the terminal case to be functional rather than aesthetic.<br>Most of our developer base still use terminals for a lot of work, and
<br>making changes that impact their ability to do that has the potential to<br>reduce our ability to develop the distribution.</blockquote><div><br>I don't think this has the ability to disrupt development.<br>While normal users usually can't find the way to get better fonts in Ubuntu,

<br>I STRONGLY suggest a vote takes place. <br></div></div><br><br>Regards,<br>Flávio Martins<br>
