I always use either Ubuntu or Liberation fonts. Droid Sans looks good to me!

nice, colorful background. I think it would look even better without the gnome logo..............

Hi all,

I have a few changes in mind for the desktop appearance for the upcoming
version of Ubuntu GNOME.

   - Ditch *Cantarell*. Cantarell, our default font, is a good typeface,
   but it's not completely localisated (i.e., it's not available for all
   alphabets) and it has legibility problems on small sizes (personally I
   think <13pt). I truly belive *we should ship Driod Sans*. It's available
   on the official repositories (*fonts-droid*) and it also offers a
   mono-spaced version (which should be used in the terminal as well). Using
   Droid Sans will allow us to ship a consistent desktop experience
   independently of the installation language.

   - *New default wallpaper*. Some people don't like very much the GNOME
   Foot wallpaper. It's dark and it also somehow hides at first sight GNOME
   Shell. With a more colourful wallpaper, the top bar will look more
   prominent. This is what I have in mind
  http://www.deviantart.com/art/GNOME-Mesh-414786193. I have talked with
   Reda and he's fine about us using it.

Now, both changes are quite easy to implement. The counterpart is that
GNOME Shell would require to patch the font in the *.css* file.

*What do you think about this proposal?*
