 Hi, guys, I agree with Volpeo, I'm linux user too and besides the fact
 Deja Vu looks "uglier" than Arial or Helvetica, the letters are much wider
 and there's more space between them. It's a problem in Brazilian
 portuguese because we really have long words and the main menu is
 "breaking". Changing the word translation is not an option because we've
 been using it for 3 years, people are already used to it. I know we may
 change the browser default, but I think WordPress should look fine without
 users needing to configure their browser. I've attached an image showing
 how the menu looks like now.
