it's all about preferences. there is no universal "best" setting so anyone is entitled to his own opinion. You're free to like high-contrast better, which is exactly why there is a auto-hinter (or truetype bytecode interpreter) in FreeType. See, it's not like I was limiting your choices...

And I still think that it's pretty easy to get "used" to the fuzziness. that doesn't mean you'll get all hot and warm about it though :-)

regarding Vista, there are plenty of screenshots on the Internet to know exactly what it looks like. I just didn't feel the need to buy a new computer just to look at that.
