Not to mention that the GPL allows for commercial use anyway.

A software license cannot restrict what you can do with artwork generated with that software. For instance, Photoshop cannot dictate what you can and can't do with artwork you generate with Photoshop. It can only cover things like how you use Photoshop itself: are you providing it to students for educational use? Are you a designer using it as part of your business? Things like that. But if the student then goes and makes a logo with that copy, the software license cannot demand royalties if the student then sells that logo. The logo is the students' own work to exploit as they wish.

comment Can you identify the font used in this CAPTCHA please?
Those images are being blocked by my internet security software because the site they're on is supposedly infected with a malware script called "Mal/HTMLGen-A".

comment Point vs Pixel: What is the difference?
That's not true at all. Firstly, unlike absolute units like px, pt, in, etc, em is a relative unit, relative to the size of your font. For many uses it's simply not appropriate. And if your font size is specified in an absolute unit, then em will be related to an absolute unit anyway. It's not a "mess" that absolute units should be scaled on devices with non-standard viewing distances or vastly differing ppi, it's the standard.

comment Is a 10 point font big enough to use for small descriptions in a cv?
That said, I agree that using Arial in a CV as a graphic designer may be a poor choice, but mainly because many graphic designers have a grudge against it - as you can see from the above comments.

You are looking at the screen-based rendering of a font that is destined to be printed, and what's more that rendering is heavily hinted (like on a MS Windows system). So I don't think we're in a position to judge the font. Furthermore, Arial despite its reputation is not a "Horrible" font, it's a professionally designed font by a renowned designer. It's also not derived from Helvetica, though its metrics are. Helvetica in similar conditions (heavily hinted on-screen) is not going to fare much better. The real test, however is in how it looks printed.
