I was wondering this when I was looking at Unicode fonts for the thread
about "old style numbers":

       What is the most popular Unicode fonts,
       and the most favorite ones, used with LO these days.

Personally I am fine with the default font provided by my distribution (Ubuntu).
I think the first preference is to use a font that is hinted for the
scripts I use (English, Greek), thus good for viewing in LibreOffice.
For printing, as long as the printer is 300dpi or more, any font will
print well.

If I want to write text in some other language, for example in a
special script, I would create a new paragraph style such as 'Hindi'
and select the appropriate font for this script.
My preference would be to avoid using a pan-Unicode font, as it may
not be hinted.

(if you computer screen has low detail, that is, low number of dots
per inch, then individual characters may not show well.
In low detail screens, you get the best visual image if the font
designer adds special instructions (hints) that helps the computer to
show the letters.)
