Default font in GNU/Linux?
Is it just me or is this font the default font in most modern GNU/Linux GUIs? (sorry for any political incorrectness) I don't actually use GNU/Linux, I use Windows, but judging by screenshots of KDE and GNOME...

Wasn't that the purpose of the fonts? Judging by the page on bitstream.com, it is.
- Actually, currently the DejaVu fonts are gaining the role as default fonts. But they are a Vera derivative. — Mikelima 08:14, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

- I've made one, but uploading is currently disabled. (Bitstream has a similar picture, but theirs is wrong - the style of the monospace lowercase L must have been changed since they did it.) --Zundark 23:02, 31 Dec 2003 (UTC)
Snow Leopard's new monospace font, Menlo, is a derivative of Bitstream Vera and/or DejaVu Sans; it's probably worth mentioning this given the appropriate citations. (The font file itself says it.) — Iggy Koopa (talk) 06:47, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Download from Bitstream
Download of the fonts is available at http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/ttf-bitstream-vera/1.10/ without charge.--DThomsen8 (talk) 12:56, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
"Download through the FontOOo wizard"
The FontOOo wizard is not included in the OO installation any more: "Where is FontOOo Wizard? That was removed back in OOo 2.0.x. ... " http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg121113.html
It seems that there is a contradiction regarding the license for the Bitstream font.
The first paragraph says the license is very liberal while the "Unicode coverage" paragraph says just the opposite. I don't know for sure but I suspect that the second should read "non-restrictive" ArtKocsis (talk) 04:35, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
You have sent a message to gnome-fonts mailing list to remove the Bitstream Vera Fonts and replace them with Cantarell.
