This is Corbel, it comes to you for free with Windows Vista. The designer Jeremy Tankard did great work with this typeface, notice the large apeture which makes funtion the typeface perfectly at small sizes, the short ascenders permit a larger x height.
Elzevirian numbers are a special feature. Another interesting things are the italic pararagraph and section glyphs, a real pleasure to view them. As you can see I like the bold italic version.
I would choose this typeface instead of the marvellous Verdana, it has a fresher contemporary look. Finally let me say that you should look at the work of this designer.

I like the new fonts that came with Vista. About the only thing I liked about Vista, actually.
