It seems that someone created a deb for this set of fonts:

For general reference, to install ttf fonts you just need to place them in usr/share/fonts and then refresh your font cache which can be done by rebooting or with the following terminal command:

fc-cache -f -v

Windows is extremely fast after a fresh install. If you want to make it stay that way: - don't use it.

They have the same look and exactly the same format as the Microsoft Original. In more complicated text-reformat, it could save you a lot of time... That's why, master.
