DejaVu fonts in Gutsy

Ubuntu uses the DejaVu fonts; DejaVu are derived from Vera, with additional coverage for Greek and Cyrillic.
Vera is currently a somewhat stale project, while DejaVu is active and increases the coverage to many languages,

He means DejaVu is an extension of Vera - i.e. they already use Vera. I agree that they need to lower the hinting - looks too blurry on my screen.

I also completely agree with you about video editing though.
