I can't understand!

I do agree with most of you: ClearType beats Linux and OSX fonts renderers.

But ClearType is no good compared to the standard Windows fonts renderer.

Take a look:

I don't understand why people prefer ClearType over standard. ClearType produces fuzzy output. I'm using a 400$ LCD monitor and I can see the artifacts introduced by sub-pixel rendering.

Why do people like fuzzy fonts? What's wrong with the good old fonts? Help me understand...
