Luxi Sans has a messed up stroke thickness at rendering sizes 13-15px.
Google Droid and DejaVu seem to lack hints.
BitStream Vera Sans seems to have hints, but kerns are sometimes odd.
Arial has hints and good kerning.
And that's what makes up the current default settings... simple as
that. Note that Arial etc. were made by a multi-person group at
Monotype, whereas the Microsoft C* fonts (Calibri, Cambria, et al)
were not, which is probably why Arial still wins over C*.

The begin of this thread was here:
I was thinking about this issue and found the thread.
I agree with OP as since ms fonts are on the top in the priority list,
as soon as I install ms fonts all my desktop starts using ms fonts
as default - even though I usually install those for specific purposes
only. I wish msfonts to have lower priority in
/etc/fonts/suse-post-user.conf, or is there a way to have a user
specific settings file?
The user file is ~/.fonts.conf and follows the same format
as the system-wide file suse-post-user.conf.
I myself use ~/.fonts.conf to set the way I prefer how kanji
rendered at certain sizes.
