RedHat has released an initial version of a set of serif, sans-serif and monospaced fonts with exactly the same metrics as the (non-free) Microsoft Times, Arial and Courier fonts, which implies those fonts can serve as a drop-in replacement. The font family is named Liberation.
If you want to fool applications into showing Liberation whenever they ask for one of the non-free Microsoft fonts, you may add some configuration snippets to you
~/.fonts.conf file. For your convenience, I’ve put an example Liberation fontconfig snippet online.
Oh, that reminds me… I should really contact some translators to ask for updates and release Gnome Specimen 0.2.
