Can you enlighten me, please?
If fd.o wants to provide the basis of a desktop environment, I see it a
critical task to also provide a set of _really good fonts_ !
Whenever I was looking for information how to improve the ugly looking fonts
on an X installation, I found pages telling me from where and how to
download/install _Microsoft_ fonts!!
Look at the following extracted from
"Further, life will be easier if you install at a minimum the so-called
Microsoft core web fonts. You don't need zillions of fonts for every day
usage. A nice handful of the basic ones works wonders. This is probably the
single most important step "
Are there any plans doing something in this direction?
What about packaging some of the freely available fonts together as a default
