cleartype is totally horrible, as is default winblows.

default winblows will show non antialiased very ugly looking fonts, and if you enable cleartype, well, the only way to describe it is that it looks as though the fonts are like one tenth of a pixel thick(ofcourse this can not be), and are basically impossible to read.

Fonts in linux have been very good for me since i started caring about my fonts, that was around 2003 i think.
