I'm a big member of the 'fonts are subjective' bandwagon, but I'm
_really_ surprised that anyone would consider the Luxi fonts to look
better than the DejaVu ones. DejaVu is just a far more polished font
set, which is why it was chosen by all major distros to replace Luxi
years ago. You're literally the first person I've come across who seems
to prefer the appearance of Luxi. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose,
I'm just surprised =)
