Hi.  Right.  I don't know, but I use ms fonts on libreoffice as well. compatibility is a good 
problem for people (and administration or schools) who want to migrate from ms to libreoffice, as 
many institutions already did.

May be we are different in something like: 'people working for people;  an association of users / 
customers;    we don't complain for policies and rules, but we build our own;  our profits are 
cultural and social  (not for super rich or fiscal paradieses)'.   open source is also a new 
business model which can redistribute wealth and make people more equal  (and collaborative).

Just updating the link to the blog post by Italo I referenced previously:

Is there any impediments with shipping all of the metrically compatible
fonts mentioned and create the mappings by default like Italo has done?

This could be a very important component for interoperability with
Microsoft documents. As a primarily Windows user I have all of the
Microsoft fonts by default but I am aware the Linux and Mac users do not.

Perhaps this could be done in the upcoming 7.3 release, or would there be a
reason that would prevent this useful step?

Kind regards
