Re: DejaVu fonts for Fedora Core 6 feedback call

Dear Fedora user,

A new font family is being proposed as the Fedora Core default. It
probably impacts your language. Please tell us what you think about it:

Happy testing!


I've been setting DejaVu as my preferred font in virtually every desktop
application I use since it was first mentioned to me several months ago; and I
must say that I think it's fantastic. It covers all the glyphs I use in both
en_US (US English) and es (Spanish) locales and - so far as I can tell - also
covers most of everything else I come across such as people that I know ranting
to me in German (de). (I don't understand much of what they're saying, but the
glyphs render nicely! ~_^) It's also *much* clearer than the prior default
fonts in Fedora and a couple of other distros that I've tried.

I'm running on a 17" Amptron CRT at 1400x1050 and 111 DPI (4:3 aspect), on a
Radeon 9250 with EXA and the as-shipped Fedora X.org/Mesa/DRI stuff. An older
screenshot of my font preferences[1] is available and its shown values are
still in use on my system. I'm also using the standard Fedora freetype build.
