I’m not getting near the “my OS can beat up your OS” debate. I’m too busy. But there’s one thing that Microsoft Longhorn/Vista gets right and that’s the screen fonts. I’m constantly futzing with my screen fonts trying to get something that’s more readable. There are six new fonts with Vista, announced quite some time ago…Calibri, Cambria, Candara, Consolas, Constantia and Corbel.
Someone has packaged them for [XP and earlier](http://test.uxevolutions.info/zoronax/entries/10) and I’m so desperate for a legible screen font that I threw caution to the wind and installed them.
Not baaaad. Didn’t take me long and I’m going through all my applications and making Consolas my fixed width choice, Constantia my serif choice and Calibri my sans serif choice.
You can [learn more](http://www.poynter.org/column.asp?id=47&aid=78683) about the fonts here.
