Greenville's face is substantially is different from Tahoma, the only
thing which is similar to Tahoma is character widths, which makes
Greenville a compatible replacement of Tahoma. Since I worked for
a publishing company for 10 years, and I know how the font faces are
being created, I should say that although Greenville has been developed
(formally) for ReactOS I don't think that that fact should make it less
useable outside of it.
