Changing UI font size in Blender

When not actually reading on the computer screen, I like to have the UI as tiny as possible so it won't consume all that precious working space.

On kde and Gnome applications I do that using their respective theme configuration files (eg. ..gtkrc-2.0).

One of the biggest annoyances on Blender, for me, was that the UI, especially text, take up too much space and I was unable to resize it to a more comfortable – read small – size.

Searching the web I found the answer at georgik's blog: Menu → File → User Preferences. In the System tab, which is the one that opens by default, change the DPI value at the General settings.
