Favourite Microsoft system fonts


Hello everyone, I'm new here at Typophile.

Microsoft products (MS Windows & MS Office) come with a variety of serif fonts. If you were limited to use Microsoft serif fonts only (for printed text), which would be your favourites to use?

I like Century Schoolbook, Goudy Old Style and Book Antiqua (Palatino Linotype has a wider line spacing by default).

Thank you.
