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?

Well, yeah. I mean, brushed metal *is* a texture, but a really *good* texture. It uses a variation in color to simulate something I'd recognize in real life: brushed metal. Most of the Textures from the 90's were crap-o-rific(TM) variations in coloring for the purpose of variating the color. It didn't really look like anything you'd normally see in your everyday life.
