India recently got a symbol for the currency Indian Rupee. Though there are several fonts for the Indian Rupee Symbol, none of them have been integrated into any operating system yet. However, there is a specialized keyboard for the Indian Rupee symbol.
Ubuntu was working on the Ubuntu Font licensing, and now that it has been approved, they have already uploaded it to the archive. However, the good news is that it gained the Indian Rupee Symbol recently and will now be available by default in the upcoming Ubuntu 10.10.
So if you have been waiting for Ubuntu 10.10, here is another reason to shift to it.
