Graphics, User Interfaces The Engineering 7 weblog has an item about the improvements made in the ClearType font rendering technology which has been included in Windows since Windows XP. While I won't go too deeply into that post, I did figure it was a good opportunity to talk about font antialiasing in general; which type do you prefer?

Best for screen or best for print

Since I mostly read computerized text on screen I prefer Cleartype, updated packages for freetype make fonts look almost as good as Windows 7. On the other hand I do sometimes print stuff so the Mac rendering looks better there. I wish the system could switch the font rendering system/appearence depending on whether it was being displayed on screen or being sent to a printer.
