    It's TrueType under the hood. You can convert it into Windows-friendly TTF using FontForge (free) or any of several tools sold by Fontlab.

    It's not really a free font. You could buy it if you want to be squeaky clean legal, or try one of the many free font sites for a reasonable clone. Guide with some places to look.
