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?

He's correct. Look at the is in "Disco" and "Easy Listening" in the iTunes window: they're not identical, the latter being smeared out and weaker. Same goes for the letter l in "Electronica" and "Gospel".

All the letters in the toolbar or whatever you call the line on top of the screen look blurry as well.
