Google has finally jumped the shark. They actually hired James Gosling, whose last gig was to drive Sun Microsystems into penury and Oracle. Now, Sun seemed to last as long after he started his campaign, there, as Google likely had left anyhow. But! we now know the instrument of their doom. (Notice how, nowadays, Google Maps often doesn't finish sending its map tiles? Hmm. And they hired Avery, too. Double hmmm.)

Can somebody tell me why Linux distributions continue shipping the terminally ugly Liberation fonts, when Linux Libertine is sitting right there?
