Hey Guys,

If anybody ever gives you grief about the value of Open Source feel free to point them to this project (stumbled across it while doing research on Microsoft's removal of fonts from Windows a couple of weeks ago)


It is a font designed to help people with Dyslexia.  For those of you who don't know what that is it is a depressingly common learning disability where words appear jumbled.  So Linux can appear as xuinL or a bunch of different ways.

People have installed it on Jailbroken Nooks and Iphones as well as Linux and Windows.  Which when you think about an e-reader for people who can't read just sounds massively cool :-)
