Description of problem:
In bug report 595223(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=595223), Fedora makes zenhei as default, but in fact microhei is better option and much more users prefer it, Ubuntu/Mandriva/mageia has already taken it. Please consider it, thanks.

CC'ing i18n & fontconfig maintainers.

reassigning to wqy-microhei-fonts. the point to propose changing the default font, you better bring it up on the fonts list first to get some consensus on this change and/or Chinese community too maybe. wqy-microhei-fonts' maintainer has some opinion for that too.
Comment 3 Peng Wu 2012-08-27 00:47:00 EDT
For personal usage, you could use fonts-tweak-tool to change the default Chinese font by you self.

To change the default font, I think we need to do some polling first.
In the previous polling, we can't get an agreement on default Chinese font.
