Earlier it was common to believe that many (never seen defined what many means) fonts will slow down windows.
Is that still a valid issue on today's hardware with Windows Vista/7?
There are some font servers out there -such as NexusFont- that can be used to serve the applications with fonts when needed, which means huge numbers of fonts won't have to be installed into the system.
Does anyone have real experience with this? I could use a fontserver, uninstall almost all fonts from windows (I'd leave arial/times/courier/segoe/consolas/calibri and the system fonts like fixedsys, marlett, wingdings) and put them under the fontserver. Would it have any visible performance effect on system boot time and system performance? The PC I'm maintaining (regular proper defrags don't count performance tuning) is a relatively modern HP laptop with enough memory, so it's not that I'd have to use all last resorts.
