Distro with Microsoft Fonts???


Is there a Linux distro that comes packaged with Microsoft fonts so I don't have to play games to download them?

# pacman -S ttf-ms-fonts

and they're installed.

I got a friend to copy them from their TT fonts directory from Windows XP. They work fine on the Linux distros that I run.
