Microsoft is asking for feedback regarding the next default font for their Office software. I don't care which wins, the only criterion important for me is the availability under a true free license so that the free software ecosystem is not left behind. With pain I remember a time when it was necessary to download Arial from the MS website (through ttf-mscorefonts-installer of course) because free distribution was not legally permitted for Linux-distros.

It's a pity that research on the Internet reveals no relevant information about the font licenses, all I find are pages announcing the request for feedback announced in the blog entry. Is there any information available on that topic?

@silwol they don’t even have *images* of the character sets of the fonts in question on the page!?
