The fonts in Mike's mockup looks just fine.

Using "impact" is a sin :p

The website is intended for Fedora users (to install Feedora 
applications or rate the Fedora applications they like) but that font is 
*not* included in Fedora (it is part of MS Core Fonts), so the average 
user of the application will not see it as you intended (I noticed 
because doing graphics I have a lot of fonts installed on my system).

This is why is wise to not use fancy fonts in such cases, stay with the 
basics, fedoraproject.org uses "sans-serif" and does not look bad at all
