Beautiful New Segoe UI Fonts in Windows 7

After I installed with the Windows 7 Release candidate, I discovered that Windows 7 comes with some additional variants of the Segoe UI font that first shipped in Vista. I love the Segoe UI (and original Segoe font) and so it’s nice to see that we now have more typographic options with Windows 7.

 

  IN VISTA IN WINDOWS 7
Segoe UI (Regular) YES YES
Segoe UI Bold YES YES
Segoe UI Bold italic YES YES
Segoe UI Italic YES YES
Segoe UI Light NO YES
Segoe UI Semibold NO YES

Would have really helped if you would have supplied the files names that go with these fonts.
