Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) arrived just a few days ago with promises of better hardware compatibility, included proprietary software and drivers, and more user friendliness. Was it wort the wait? And more importantly - Is it finally time to "Make the Switch"?" Read the review here. Elsewhere, "First thoughts on Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn" was published at ZDNet. Update: A reply article to the two linked above.

q The fonts in OpenOffice.org are rendered differently to the way they're rendered by GTK+, and have been for two releases now. q/

The fonts look perfect in Kubuntu 7.04 but not in Ubuntu.
The same with firefox.
KDE does a better job in rendering fonts.
This used to be the other way around for years..

Sounds like you have KDE installed on an Ubuntu install or vice versa. KDE f--ks up the Gnome font settings with the changes it makes to ~/.fonts. Try removing that then restarting Gnome.
