Goodbye Times

07Jan07


In recent news…

I just found an article on digg that proclaims that the new version of the world’s most popular word-processor will no longer use Times New Roman as the default font.

Although I don’t think that this is massive news, it does show the way in which one font managed to take over the printed word. The new font, Calibri will debut in the 2007 edition of Word and will soon take over the Times role. I kinda wonder whether the average word user will accept this. They might switch make to times out of familiarity or maybe this will be the second awakening of type in the mainstream?
