Web Typography: I wonder

Following a recent news on Typographica: Font embedded into web pages? I vote for only after the resolution of screens increase to 300 dpi. Before, not really a need?

What who can be problematic in short term is the availability of bundled fonts (the core set of each operating system) in different platforms. Still today, with the old Explorer MacOs, Mac user have chance to have Verdana, Georgia and others like Windows users. I wonder what will happen in next generation of MacOs when Explorer will not anymore available on Mac and Office not installed.

Then, MacOs, Linux and Windows will back again in 3 different font worlds and it will became more problematic for web designers than painful various support of CSS.
