If by free you mean under the GPL, I can't help you, as I
don't know any good quality GPL fonts from a typographic
point of view -- the GPL is inappropriate for fonts.

However, the nerest thing is probably the Open Font Licence
(or License in the US), and SIL just released Charis, Doulos
and Gentium under the OFL --
see for example.
These cover all of what is needed for most Latin and Cyrillic
writing systems, plus IPA; Gentium includes Greek.

There's also Bitstream Vera, of course, which was explicitly
released for the Gnome desktop.

None of these support Chinese/Korean/Japanese.
