Oink oink flap flap.

There's no point in even mentioning .EOT in discussions on practical web 
design these days; .EOT is useful for trivial demonstrations only.

In practice, the prime question in font choices is: which specific 
fonts, among those with more than, say, 20% coverage do you choose, in 
which order do you put them,  and can you really be sure that each and 
every of them works reasonably for your pages? Having solved this, you 
_might_ consider and which less common fonts you might add before them.
