Niiiice, I might have to give myself an early Christmas present.
Is Museo Serif on the way, too (or am I being too greedy)?

Chris! You just wait till your next release! (thx!)

@ mili — No serif for Museo. Maybe a condensed Sans and maybe also a rounded sans.

Ooh, either or both of those would be great!

Excellent! Despite all the differences, it still looks immediately like Museo.

Peace,

Late to the party. This really looks great Jos. A 'happy' slab, which is unusual. It should be competition for Archer, which seems to be everywhere. (I love it as well.)

Archer is too small on the body to be really friendly.

I'm lovin' it. I'll probably use it a lot, maybe not as much as the sans or Delicious, but it looks like it has a lot of utility. Well done!

Speaking of Delicious, I remember a while back I read on your blog that you were playing around with revising/updating it. Still planning to do that?

Does that ranking factor out the freebies?
If not, is there a way to tell what proportion was paid?

Free downloads do not affect the rankings at MyFonts, only sales.

Jos, you seem to have an impeccable knack for drawing fonts that people immediately love. Any tips!?

*Edit* Sorry, forgot to mention, Museo Slab is lovely! :)

No tips I'm affraid, Ben. I'm only doing what I like and what I think is interesting to work on. I'm often surprised that so many people appreciate my fonts.

(Thanks! :)

Ah yes, Poor Wolfman Jack had quite a big, crazy voice in the sixties.
