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?

Depends on what I'm doing. ClearType looks good only on Vista/7 with the new fonts; but the clarity pays off on a monitor with a good size.
On the other hand; I've developed a fetish for Monaco on Font-Smoothing; maybe it's cuz I code in mac on my desktop and XP in my laptop (with consolas font).
I don't like linux font-smoothing that much; it doesn't work that well..
