Graphics, User Interfaces "Joel Spolsky in his article 'Font smoothing, anti-aliasing, and sub-pixel rendering' compares Microsoft and Apple ways of text rendering and explains why windows people don't like Safari. Text in Safari looks too blurry and that must be why. I want to go further and sum up my experience and observations about it. I'm not an expert in digital typography, but I 'have something to say'. At least, some ideas may be useful for the GNU/Linux community."

Actually, at my workplace I selected a laptop type (z60m) with a 1680x1050 resolution, or about 130dpi. I love that :-). Clear, crisp, high-fidelity text in KDE once I turn hinting off. Most of my colleagues who are saddled with my choice of laptop run it at 1024x768. Because otherwise the fonts are too small.
