The disappearance of Times New Roman

Extensis Community Blog discussing the decision by Microsoft to drop Times New Roman as the default font and to replace it by a sans serif, Calibri. In support, we have opinions like: Times New Roman was, is an anachronism chosen without much care, a font that represents the blandness and lack of brio in business-speak. In support, some people point to the US State Department's decision in 2004 to replace Courier 12 by Times New Roman 14, and to the good design of Times New Roman. Several people blasted Microsoft for replacing a serif typeface by a sans typeface as the default. There was support for Microsoft's contribution to fonts that work well on screen.
