Helvetica

Just watched the documentary 'Helvetica' which i think was released last year but i didnt get round to seeing it then. It is really really good and if you are into graphic design and/or typography at all, definitely bother to see it.

Apparently Arial is just a Microsoft copy of Helvetica. They didn't want to pay the royalty charges so they made their own knock-off version. Although there are small differences they are apparently nearly identical to the untrained eye.

fact ^ Helvetica is nicer though over all in my opinion. You can see the differences between the two most on the capital G and R (i really hate the Arial caps R) and veerryyy subtle differences on letters like lower case c and t.
GEEK OUT!
