ABOUT







Segoe=Frutiger

Microsoft intends to put a font called Segoe UI (2003, Agfa Monotype) on its Longhorn Windows software to be released in 2005 or 2006. This one is very very very close to Frutiger---the upper cases are identical, and the lower case characters have slightly flattened bowls. But what can one expect from a lawless company like Agfa Monotype that still refuses to withdraw its Book Antiqua, a copy of Palatino? Now, they are stealing another Linotype font---maybe, there is a pattern here. Agfa seems to have replaced Segoe on their web site by "Stack (available soon)" [look under Sans]. Also, ominously, Segoe disappeared from their list of trademarks.
