I mean, Texas Instruments had enough patience to make a font, didn't they?
Well, they also had years to work on it, and I believe they just copy-pasta'd.
Indeed. The font is very common on devices with a low-res LCD screen.

Example:

The font looks fammiliar, no? And seen from some CSE screenshots, the CSE font looks like it's just a higher-resolution version of this (with a few exceptions).

Yeah on the CSE it looks like they just resized them then used some 2xSai filter or something like in SNES emulators.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
