I noticed from Kaldari's notes  that "Open sans" was rejected based
on language support and install base. I notice however that it is
pretty popular on the web [2,3]. Can someone elaborate on these
results as it is surprised me?
To me we can learn from this experience that install base (especially
where Windows is concerned) is probably not such an important factor.
The language support is more of an issue, but I wonder if this can be
resolved by specific font stacks with more suitable open fonts is
To improve install base we can easily iterate on this and start using
web fonts in some form in the future.
