The Vera Sans font is free, with only the restriction that you have to
name your "new" font made form it another name. If you scour the
internet you'll find some interesting versions although the biggest
problem with most of them is the lack of characters outside of the ASCII

We merged all the different versions that we could find (at suse) and
named it SuSE Sans, etc. One interesting version of the Vera font which
has been adjusted for screen use is the Toga font.
