Comment 4 for bug 42926

Well, you're right about that. I remember using OpenOffice for the first time and liking it except for the fact that I had to scroll through an absolutely MASSIVE list just to get to the default sans font.

Very few users will ever install fonts on their computer, I believe. It's one of the things that the typical user just doesn't seem to like doing. A nice amount of fonts might be around 20. 4 of those are default system fonts (the Bitstream family), then there must be a few international fonts, and the other around 10 could be fonts for usage in office programs (the "Comic Sans"-esque fonts).
