Many online font surveys pretend informing app and web developpers on
the fonts which are likely to be found on Linux systems. They are
usually based on the state of Linux font deployment that was true
around Red Hat 7.x, and have not been updated since.

Some of them are particularly tragic insamuch as they offer online
polls to end-users, but only give historical fonts as choices so you
can't even propose modern fonts
(for example
http://www.codestyle.org/css/font-family/sampler-UnixResults.shtml ;
another one I don't have the time to dig out today depends on a java
applet that will typically not work on many Linux systems ; etc)
