Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

A recent update in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat (it probably didn't reach the users yet) sets the Ubuntu font as the default Application, Window title, and Desktop font for Ubuntu 10.10:

ubuntu-artwork (53.7) maverick; urgency=low

* debian/gconf-defaults
- Set default Application, Window title, and Desktop fonts
to "Ubuntu"

The default font size will be set to 11 (instead of 10).

For now, the font has only been set as default for the Ubuntu Desktop edition; Kubuntu will not be getting the Ubuntu font by default and regarding the Ubuntu Netbook Edition (or the other Ubuntu flavors), no info is available at this time.

Update: you can now install the Ubuntu Font Family from a public PPA.
