Why doesn't the Windows L&F use the same Fonts as Windows?

Marcel Offermans

Windows uses scalable (vector) fonts and fixed (bitmap) fonts. As far as I know Java can only use the scalable fonts.

Of course if you really want to emulate the Windows L&F you can always improve upon Sun's implementation. Subclass the L&F, add scalable versions of fixed fonts, etc.
