Please excuse my ignorance, I just find it weird. I am on my Win7 box. Also, only this site renders the font in my browser while does not. I am pretty sure the latter uses Ubuntu font as the default the last time I logged into my Ubuntu box.

Confirmed using Google Chrome's resource tracking: This site uses a downloadable web font while just specifies the font's name. – ændrük Oct 11 '10 at 0:28
