i second that :-)

i use them too, and they are great!
i also set the Font Replacement Table in OpenOffice to replace the
corresponding MS fonts with these fonts according to their fonts families.
it can be patched globally by editing the file:
/{where OO is
where the "Font Replacement Table" setting are stored.

i'm attaching it.
