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?

You can have good AA on Linux, you just have to tweak the FreeType settings. Of course, I have it disabled for mid-sized fonts (only less then 7 points and greater than 12 points have it enabled, as do bold and italic fonts, where the smoothy prevents obvious ugly jaggies).
