Fedora considering default font switch

Filed under

The Fedora Project is thinking about switching to the DejaVu font family as the default font in Fedora Core. DejaVu is a derivative of the popular Bitstream Vera family, which has not seen any updates since 2003.

The Fedora developers are looking for feedback on the fonts and the proposed change.
