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."

"But a very informative article from Maxim nonetheless."

Yes very good indeed.

"I hope Stephan from Haiku is making notes! ;) "

I'm not sure whether he is, but I am. I've been keeping up with all this recent talk about font rendering and plan to do what I can to get nice font rendering on Haiku. Of course what we have now isn't too bad.
