    I am writing again because some people aren't reading all the posts:

    This is not true!

    Truetype font and opentype font support the same amount.

    Maybe many people here are confused opentype font with opentype feature.

    There is truetype font with opentype features and opentype font with opentype features.

    When a truetype font has a DSIG table (digital signature) the icon change from "T" to "O" but the font is still a Truetype.

    Ex: Arial Unicode has more them 51000 characteres and is a Truetype font with a lot of languages and opentype features.

    Don't convert truetype to opentype or opentype to truetype, this is not a perfect conversion and the font won't have the exact draws.

    A good truetype font has better hinting them a opentype font but opentype fonts have less nodes, less size of file and need less memory to print.

    I'd say put the TTF's somewhere else (just in case) and have OTF's in your main folder, no use to have them both when (as already explained in great lengths by others) OTF is technically improved and updated TTF

    Wrong, plain wrong, utterly wrong. Please, oh pwetty please, educate yourself a bit about a topic you're to comment on - you could for instance read that very thread you're posting in, prior to spreading nonsensical rumors.

    What is the best way to decide to use or keep the TTF verses the OTF?

    OpenType families have until 65,636 glyphs (PostScript, limited to 256). You can include special characters (ligatures, fractions, small caps) and "non-Latin" scripts. The Opentype files can be used for Mac and Windows and on some Unix systems.
    You can like it or not, but it seems that OpenType is the future (for now)

    A good Truetype font has better hinting (delta hinting) and it is better to use in screen (web font).

    Very old poor programs only accept truetype font.

    Opentype fonts has less nodes, uses less memory and are a little better to printing.

    Both fonts have opentype features.

    Keep both, especially when used for branding. There is always going to be someone at some point that can't make a particular file type work. e.g., to old sign engraver still using windows 98!

    Most of the times I can't choose... but if I could, I would surely chose OTF:

    I've had less problems with OTF fonts, besides, as they said before, the files are lighter (weight less) than the .ttf.

    I keep both font files on my personal fonts folder. I usually install OTF only. If I need TTF for web or something, then I go back to where I store fonts and install it again... :)
