I feel like everyone's jumping on the bandwagon for
this font -- and, for me, it wears thin very
quickly -- especially for high-level business
documents, white papers, and for technical writing.
Is sounds very appropriate for the animation
product, however.

I use Comic Sans Serif for all my headings and it
some of the highlighted
text. Of course, I'm writing a manual for a 2-D
animation product, so it's
appropriate for my audience of animators.

It's great and I'm happy to be able to finally use a
fun font in my docs.
