When I reviewed Extensis Suitcase Fusion 2 released last November, it was only available for Mac OS X. At the time, they promised a Windows version with feature parity. Now, Extensis has released Suitcase Fusion 2 for Windows.
A review of the product site reveals that the new Windows version does seem to have parity with the most critical features:
- font previewing featuring the floating preview
- plug-in based auto-activation for the latest creative professional applications
- robust database featuring SQL Lite
- portable built-in font vault
- font searching, tagging and classification options
- system font management
They promise the same graphic performance as on Mac OS X in Windows XP, Vista. Their blog mentions that they have been performing tests in the upcoming release of Windows 7.
If you do a significant amount of graphic design or wish to more easily manage a lot of fonts, I suggest you give Suitcase Fusion 2 for Windows a look. They have a free 30 day trial. If you are not familiar with the product, have a look at the videos.
