New Microsoft C*-Fonts for all (Win, Mac, Linux) (March 21, 2007)
Microsoft has created some new fonts for their Office 2007 suite and Vista: Calibri, Cambria, Candara, Consolas, Constantia, Corbel. Read this article for more infos and some pictures.
They look pretty good I have to admit but nevertheless they are tainted by evil ;-). Nevertheless they might become quite common in the next months. So how does one acquire these fonts (besides spending a fortune on their software)?
Windows ships them with their free PowerPoint Viewer. All you have to do is extract the
*.exe and the containing
*.cab. Than you’ll be able to install the TrueType Fonts like others.
HowTo install on Linux
Run cabextract on the
*.exe and the
ppviewer.cab once. You’ll have the TTF files in your current directory, install them (e.g. via KControl).
