I wanted to update Microsoft's "core fonts", downloading the newest versions from http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fontpack/default.htm but have noticed there are download options for either Windows or Mac OS, the latter probably referring to Mac OS 9 native fonts, since no X is specified.

Since Apple seems to be preferring only-data-forked fonts, which is the best option to use on Mac OS X?: Mac OS classic resource&data-forked fonts, or Windows only-data-forked fonts.

Note I do not care about portability to other platforms, I plan to use those fonts only on my Mac, and on X exclusively.
