current fontconfig configuration[1] sets the highest priority for Microsoft
font. If user install them (i.e. Times New Roman, Arial, Consolas) they will
be set as _default_ for respectively families (sans-serif, sans, monospace).
Why do we promote Microsoft fonts instead support open fonts, shipped with

I propose[2] to downgrade those fonts. Thanks to this, we keep our default
font settings but those MS fonts will be still available for use.

Whats Your point of view in this case?
