Thank you @Anatoly.

-> I have no problem with this.

Quote:"But there is good fonts set from Microsoft that is free."
-> I like this fonts.

Quote: "I've always wanted GPL,BSD,MIT-like licensed fonts set that is really 
good on hinting, but I never found."

->This is very interesting. Thank you for sharing it.
But I wonder: What good looking fonts did Linux use as default before 
anti-aliaing was introduced?

A) Linux never ever had in no way fonts with good hinting. Linux users were 
willing to accept fonts with (little) bad hinting (before anti-aliasing).
B) Linux did use this Microsoft core fonts you have suggested as default.
C) Linux did use only pixel Fonts in Mono style.

Thank you.
