I'd say it would not be good.  Fixed-width fonts are desirable when
it's for code (of any language).  The example www.knime.org site uses
proportional fonts for R code which makes it hard to read IMHO.  I
really dislike that.

What's wrong with a spartan look?  Google has flourished with a
no-unnecessaries approach to home page clutter.
