    Phoronix: Fedora 36 Looking To Change Its Default Fonts

    Fedora is often on the bleeding-edge of changes for tier-one Linux distributions but not all of them are very technical in nature but sometimes just cosmetic alterations. Among the latest batch of change proposals for next spring's Fedora 36 is to change the default font...

          Finally! I am glad somebody is pushing to ditch the DejaVu fonts already!

                  I use this to improve font rendering on Fedora https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/co.../better_fonts/
                  Works great.

                    Just bring red hat display and text fonts as default. I use it that way since the first time I used fedora.
