Graphics, User Interfaces You probably missed this earth-shattering news, but Ikea IKEA, the Swedish furniture and other assorted home decoration products company, has switched fonts. The company always used the Futura font for its catalogues, but the latest edition has ditched it in favour of Verdana. This has caused quite the stir among typography geeks.

For normal text, I prefer the version of Sans that comes standard with Gnome. I find it looking very clean, and it suits the Clearlooks and Shiki themes very well.
Sometimes (if the stars are aligned in a specific way) I prefer the Liberation version of the aforementioned. For a monospace font I use Apple's Monaco (don't know if that's legal, don't care). I find programming software much more joyful due to that font.
