So, I was working on a spreadsheet the other day in Microsoft Office 12. And I cut over to Word for the first time and I noticed the font was Calibri. Instantly, I realized I like Calibri. It’s nice, well-rounded and clean, like you might want your daughter’s new “friend” to be.

Then, I realized that Calibri is going to be so damn ubiquitous, like Arial, or Times New Roman, that I’ll hate it, or become enured to its beauty.

Here’s some related reading:
Wikipedia already has a mention of MSFT’s use of it in Vista and Office 12.
And WindowsATOZ has an article on Office12Beta.
MSFT has a typography page (Nuts!) and a FontBlog.
