Fonts beauty is in the eye of the beholder, besides being a complex subject.
RedHat's philosophy regarding patents and licensing is different from
Canonical's as well, and apparently part of the difference running live
images. A question remains, did or does Fedora equip you to make
post-installation changes to get results you can be pleased with, or can't
you get there at all?
Until and unless Fedora matches up to *buntu's defaults, make sure any demos
you make trying to persuade that Fedora is better are made using the highest
DPI display you can muster. ;-)
