I didn't really mean font rendering or anything else fancy; I meant the typographical styling within menus etc. Even after a culling, the menus & dialog boxes look ugly, disjointed and unplanned. Now [& as I said earlier] this is not really technical criticism appropriate to OSNews, so er..I'll stop now.
