Shipped fonts matter little, if the fonts change on every firmware update. I say "if" because I am unclear as to whether updates remove existing fonts. I seem to remember people saying they do.

After a 2.1.4 update touch, does the glo end up with the same fonts as the touch? After 2.1.4 update my Touch now has

Amasis
Avenir
Georgia
Gill Sans
Rockwell
Gothic MB101
Ryumin

(i.e. a different seven fonts to those you listed)

Shortly after the Glo and Mini where announced, Kobo said the Touch would get all the updates that these got including the fonts. Unfortunately, they have since found they cannot do this. Space somewhere on the Touch was the reason given. They have decided that not updating the fonts was the best choice. But, I think the Touch will see all the other changes.

on the Glo, I have noticed something "funny" : if I choose a font in the font menu, I have all the fonts listed above for the Glo, if I go into "advanced" parameters, then I miss
  • Gothic MB101
  • Ryumin
  • OpenDyslexic

In first intention, I came here to "complaint" about the fonts I was stolen of but it just seems that thoose fonts can't be adjusted like the others...
