Which default font are you referring to?  The font for Text cells?
There are many different fonts depending on which type of cell you are

One thing that has changed in a significant way in M9 is that the
fonts and styling for the default style sheet Default.nb are very
different than in V8 and all versions before.  For example the default
font for Text cells is now Arial rather than Times, and the Section
cells now have a larger font size and are now colored orange rather
than black.

As a general opinion, I feel that this is the wrong design

Any other opinions out there?
