I guess I don't really get why this is "won't fix" - the requirements listed on the home project page says "Windows 7+". If the UI requires Windows 8 fonts to display the menu glyphs, it makes the app a little less "user-friendly" to have to hover and wait for the tooltip text.
Have you considered possibly embedding something like Font Awesome? It's license allows use in "desktop" apps. If you're willing to re-open this issue, I'd be willing to take a stab at switching the glyphs.
Microsoft's licensing does not allow me to distribute the font. Distributing the any font would require elevating the installer privilege to admin which I'm not willing to do. It's not a bug, it's a choice. Also, the font only has to be updated once per machine, not on every install or update.
