Evocative typography

I appreciate effective technology and design aesthetics, but often find one appearing without the other, as their experts often seem to live in parallel universes.  As such, I was pleased to note The Ubuntu Font, and interested to note that the simple fact of using a different combination of pixels to represent menu characters could confer a noticeably different user experience. At least to me, it seems evocatively British, providing a welcome transatlantic contrast to many user interfaces.
