Fonts Bundled with Software

Corel Draw bundled fonts
Corel Draw (Version 4 and later), Corel Clipart collections and, apparently, Corel Wordperfect, come bundled with a collection of up to around 1000 fonts, mostly from Bitstream. Older versions have URW and ITC fonts as well. Newer versions are in Open Type TTF, older ones in Truetype and Postscript T1. These fonts are good in quality but lack advanced typographic features like old style figures and smallcaps.
Adobe Creative Suite bundled fonts
Adobe Creative Suite products come bundled with a large collection of fonts.
