Font management for PC running Windows 8

Finally upgraded to a new PC recently at work and need to grab some font management software. Old PC was running ATM. I'm a Mac guy so I'm not really too familiar with the Windows environment, but got charged with that task. What are you guys using that you would recommend?

A Mac.  ;D

But honestly, I don't even use font management on Mac anymore. Just the indesign font folder or font book if the folder is acting funny.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.
