Designers know the pain of managing fonts in any OS. Without a font manager, previewing each fonts and than copying them to the fonts folder is very cumbersome. There are no. of font manager available for Windows such as AMP Font Viewer, Fontonizer. Managing fonts in Linux OS is lot more pain. Most of the users don’t know where to copy the fonts. The equivalent of C:\Windows\Fonts in Linux is /user/share/fonts. Now with Fontmatrix the pain of managing fonts are gone.
