    I always prefer OTF as open type.

    If you have OTF, you do not need TTF at all!

    TTF in fact uses much more points, so it is eager to loose smoothness on big sizes. While OTF is real vector, as less points as possible, always best shapes.

    It all comes down to your skill level. Some don't use anything properly. A few can make Type 1 fonts sing.

    Good point.

    On the other hand, there's a minor drawback with the OT-CFF flavour under recent Windows OS: big performance hit when displaying huge (complex, MB-size) OT-CFF fonts, whereas the exact same font with TrueType outlines shows in a snap... although theoretically even more complex and harder on memory.
    It all comes down to the relative performance of various font rasterizing engines...

    i have to agree with this. smaller file size too and look better in windows 7. mac always renders any fonts great tho :)

    Kinda wish Adobe would've incorporated the Opentype text box option across all their platforms early on.

    It's all matters of preference. TTF can have all the OTF features if they contains OT Layout. Foundries which choose to work with TT outlines over PS outlines produce ttf fonts instead of otf fonts, and then they convert them. But the conversion could somehow screw up the outlines, so if fonts originally made of ttf, use the ttf.
