This is definitely a good idea.

AFAIK, modern TeX distributions embed all fonts by default.  You can
find out which fonts are not embedded using the Acrobat Reader: Select
File=>Document Properties=>Fonts in the menu.

On UNIX systems it is more convenient:  Run 

   pdffonts somefile.pdf

and you'll get a list.

If some fonts are not embedded, it would be nice to know which TeX
distribution you are using.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
