It's very limiting, though. There are few fonts licensed in a free/
open-spource friendly manner. Most freeware fonts are a joke.
I'm currently considering to edit the letters much more.
This is clearly a font for continuous text. Even subtle serifs make
for an antiquely look when used for headlines / logos, imho.

Right. Fixed width is rather ... brute, anyway.

Well, the "a" is indeed a bit weak. But it's a way more robust design than
the "a" of Blue Highway (or many other freeware fonts).
This happens to be only the sans-serif font I found in a condensed version
with reasonable quality.
And condensed (narrow width) is my choice, because it works better with
the tall penguin and because the text is rather long.
