Picking up the right typography is one of the most critical aspects in making a successful design. Most designers today are taking the risk of going out of the box in terms of choosing the right font style in their projects.

By default, Ubuntu comes with a lot of non-english fonts (Japanese, Cyrillic etc.).

(Lucida MAC) Searching to download some Mac OSX fonts like Saurabhneo suggested earlier , I found a pack with some Apple Mac OSX fonts which includes: AppleGaramond, Aquabase, Lithgrl, Lucida Grande and Lucida MAC. Download the fonts from here: Mirror 1 | Mirror 2 .
Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007 introduce the new ClearType Collection typefaces: Calibri , Cambria , Candara , Consolas , Constantia , and Corbel . They replace the classics Times New Roman, Arial, Courier New, etc. When passing documents between systems, it's necessary to have the same: otherwise, documents look and layout may suffer. If you get an Office Open XML .docx or .pptx, chances are you need these new fonts, but OpenOffice.org, Linux, and Windows XP users need not be left out in the cold. Until Red Hat creates new metrically equivalent fonts ( as it did for the older Microsoft fonts ), it's easy to install these new Microsoft fonts without Vista or Office.

There are some amazing new font foundries on the design scene who are doing some brilliant work and making it available to designers and developers everywhere for next to nothing. The release of a new font or font family sees the release of a free weight, a trending practice that garners no complaints from anyone. As designers and purveyors of art and all things creative, we enjoy the art of another responsibly and ration our funds for highly desirable designs and resources. I have to admit, there are many stunning fonts out there and most are not cheap.
Gothic fonts most often are referred as Ancient and Out-Dated fonts but in this modern era there are designers who are very interested in Gothic Category of fonts.
