lm is meant as a replacement for cmr, plr, csr, aer, vnr, whatever-r around ... it's metric compatible so it makes no sense to use cmr any more (which was the whole idea behind starting the lm project); the same is true for tex gyre
Perhaps it's better, but I like much cm. I want to change. It's technically possible to change it?
Sure, you just have to define your own typescripts and install the fonts (eg bluesky version). There are some howto's out there for installing postscript fonts in ConTeXt (see the wiki: http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Fonts ), and make sure you take optical scaling into account (my article discusses that).
The only thing that I've noticed is that bluesky cmr seems to be hinted better and looks better on-screen at certain sizes than the lmr postscript fonts.
OTOH I see no reason for using cmr. For all practical purposes lmr IS cmr. If you find an area where there is a substantial difference, I'd like to see it :-)
