    Very nice font. You can find it all over the place for free.

    Not if he has to use it professionally.

    font newb

    no man. a font newb would be someone all into the latest, internet, faddish font that seems, to him, is a special obscure font, but it actually is played out and ubiquitous.

    a true font man would come to a full circle and realize and respect the beauty of the apparent font that was there all along. after all the hype and backlash. it becomes fresh and niche again.

    Arial is like gourmet frozen pizza: adequate and accessible, but disregarded by the people that really know what's up.
