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?

Personally, I've never had a religion obsession of one mode of rendering over another; I like how Mac does it, just as I like how Windows Vista and Freetype (with patented hinting + personal tweaks). For me I can't work out why people thing that there is this accusation of 'fuzzy' when one looks at the screenshot of my desktop I can't see it:

Maybe my eye's are screwed because I don't see any fuzziness.
