Jay, I believe Kevin’s opinion should have more weight as he is a Chinese
reader. He knows about fonts for his language, and he can tell the strenghts
and weaknesses of each one of them.

I don’t think any of us (in UX-Advise) is in a position to evaluate whether a
move to other fonts for CJK is good or not – that should be evaluated by native
readers of the script, not by a bunch of UX enthusiasts who don’t even know
Chinese.

Also, I don’t think that libre fonts are necessarily better for the purposes of
interoperability that LibreOffice is trying to pursue. This is even more of a
complicated issue for non-Latin scripts.

And when we changed default fonts to Liberation, the request was escalated to
the ESC, IIRC. And we actually shipped those fonts. Defaulting to fonts that we
don’t ship makes no sense, as it made no sense when OOo defaulted to AGFA
fonts.
