Some people recommends to remove most possible fonts to improve performance, other people says that this is just a myth and make no difference unless we have a system with hundreds of fonts. There are conflicting reports on this!
In addition to fonts loaded in background on system boot, I also noticed that when we open Photoshop, Gimp and similar I can see in the log that loading fonts takes time and this for sure depends from the number of fonts loaded in the system. They don't seem to load fonts on demand (when we open the font picker), but directly on application boot.
Icy, did measured consumed resources in task manager or similar tools before and after fonts removal? Did improved the loading of programs?
I see that you removed nearly all the fonts, therefore may be it should be a bit better.
