Definitely not programming related... –  Pekka 웃 Sep 16 '10 at 11:41
    
Fun thing to try in PS CS5: Remove Beta, select the white area around Ubuntu and inside the b letter, Select -> Fill -> Content-Aware Fill. I have no clue if you are allowed to use the original one though... –  Tom Wijsman Sep 16 '10 at 12:08

The easy way is to just use the same font...

It's either 1) just a font that has this texture already OR 2) it's a regular font with a pattern overlay.

If you go to the blending properties of the text layer, there's an option to fill with pattern, "Pattern Overlay". Also, there's probably a 1px stroke that has the same or a slightly lighter colour as the pattern color.
