The automatic font conversion that OOo 2.0 RC3 does in its launcher script is a TERRIBLE idea. Please make this optional, and NOT the default. Stuffing unwanted and poorly converted fonts into the OOo truetype folder would be worthy of the arrogance of Microsoft installers.

I mirror Mac OOo & NeoOffice inside Sun, and had to remove the two calls to fondu in the RC3 launcher applescript. Sun employees need to use the same fonts as other Star Office users, so automatically converting of Mac fonts into the OOo truetype fonts folder is intrusive and unwanted.

Such unexpected behind the scenes conversions should ONLY be done with the user's permission!

Alan, as James noted in the other thread, you need to make sure the people on the dev@porting.openoffice.org mailing list hear your concerns (they don't seem to post here often, though perhaps they are lurking, and unlike with 1.1.2, Ed's not doing the official build).
