For most users, whether it be on windows or linux, they use the fonts that come
with their system and microsoft proprietary fonts like simsun and yahei are not
available to linux users unless they purchase them or copy them from their
windows installation. While with free fonts, if a user doesnt have it, they can
easily download it for free.
Ultimately, if free CJK fonts do a good enough job for displaying and printing,
they should be the default if present on the system and if a user wishes to use
other fonts instead, they can do so. Only by having more people use the free
fonts, will the problems with these fonts be noticed and hopefully corrected.
With more chinese using linux distributions like Ubuntu Kylin and Linux Deepin,
i believe the WenQuanYi fonts < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WenQuanYi > will
only get better with time. I hope that you will also encourage the visitors to
your chinese LibO forum to visit < http://wenq.org/wqy2/index.cgi > and help
improve the fonts. I would love your feedback on how well chinese linux distros
handle this lack of complete CJK fonts.
jmadero suggested that i set this to ux-advise to hear what they have to say
about the issue.
