Hello! I am wondering what is the REAL difference between ttf-ms-core vs ttf-ms-win10? they both look the same, I am a bit confused because I need this for my studies
The difference between
ttf-ms-win10 is that the former is a copy of the fonts that Microsoft made available in the past. The latter is a way to install the fonts you extract from Windows 10.
Thank you! one more thing, is there any consequence if I install both or only one of them?
