Why do people say it looks like crap?
Because they're not dyslexic? I understand that it does make reading easier for some, and so I think it's worthwhile including it, but yeah it does look like crap to me. But then so do monospace fonts for anything except programming. I know nothing about font design - but it sounds like perhaps neither does Kobo, and you'd think that if they're doing something nobody else is, that they'd ask for some help to ensure that the font actually works well on their displays.
