Microsoft released a number of fonts with Vista. A second package,
say ttf-msvistafonts-installer, would be useful to download, extract
and install these fonts. If this is illegal (as appears to be the
case), tagging this bug WONTFIX and explaining why would be useful for
people looking through the BTS to see if anyone else has asked for
According to Wikipedia, these fonts are available for free (of charge)
download. When I downloaded FileFormatConverters.exe and cabextracted
it, it contained an "EULA" file which included the following lines,
which seem to indicate that it is illegal to install these fonts on
anything other than Windows.
4. FONT COMPONENTS.
You may use the fonts that accompany this software only to display
and print content from a device running a Microsoft Windows
operating system. Additionally, you may only
• embed fonts in content as permitted by the embedding
restrictions in the fonts; and

or other output device.
You may not copy, install or use the fonts on other devices.
