I keep my fontconfig priorities for serif, sans serif and monospace families 
set to the Google Droids, regardless what's been chosen by the distro. 
Running at 120 DPI or higher, all the legibly large enough sizes look great 
without much impact from font smoothing settings. The sizes too small to read 
anyway don't matter.
