Most came with your OS. But Helvetica is a luxury font exclusive to OSX, if you use Windows and yet you want to use it, you'll have to pay for it (It's price is quite steep).

Helvetica is not license to Windows, unless you got a bootleg windows with bundled fonts, otherwise, there is no reason you're having Helvetica, you may be able to see the Helvetica font, but you can't use it.

Weird, perhaps now Vista has helvetica installed.

Previously when I was using Windows XP, there was no Helvetica at all. I can view but Microsoft did not pay the royalty fee thus windows users had to buy the helvetica family themselves.

Johno over at ILoveTypography.com got me thinking about my favorite fonts. I have a list of go-to fonts, but it’s not terribly interesting. On that list, however are a couple of free fonts that I love, so I decided to come up with 10 interesting free fonts that I don’t see people use that much.

Lindau




Comes in a great variety of weights: light, regular, medium, bold, extra bold, and black. The version I’ve been using needs kerning (I took it on myself to kern the font for my own use, I like it so much), but it’s an otherwise excellent family.



Zalamander Caps




Zalamander is a full-featured font family, and the folks at Just Another Foundry are giving away the all-caps version. Beautifully balanced, bold, and striking.

IM Fell




A beautiful set of revival fonts, complete with ligatures, swash characters, and ornaments. As the author says, these fonts are “nearly free,” with a clause in the license that you have to attribute their use in your publications.

Blue Plate Special




A great, stylized slab serif. You can get a free version of this font over at MyFonts.com. The Pro version is $7.



Clementine Sketch




You may know DeviantArt.com as a haven for anime and off-beat photography, but there are also a slew of free fonts there, and some of them are really great. (The remainder of the fonts on my list are all from DA.) Take Clementine Sketch, for instance. A lovely hand-drawn font that connects its glyphs ingeniously.

Reaktor




A great, futuristic sans-serif that makes for beautiful headlines.

Citrus




Quirky, hand-crafted, and impactful.

Drinking About You





Tall, skinny, high-contrast, and slick.

Often




A lovely sans-serif that’s in beta right now. Eventually, this will be a commercial font, so grab the beta version and play around with it while you can.

Bola




Another nice, quirky display face. Great contrast; excellent geometry.
