I prefer the Ubuntu font as Droid Sans is too tall and not optimized for

>    - 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?*
