Standard Fonts on Linuxes

What is the most common standard serif font on Linuxes?

Liberation fonts family (serif, sans, mono) and Linux Libertine (serif).

Another good one in most Linuxes is DejaVu family. See: Best Unicode Fonts for Programer.

What is the standard Chinese font on Linux?

The WenQuanYi (文泉驛) family is most common. This family does not include brush-style (Kei) typeface though. This is the only Chinese font installed with Ubuntu by default.
