Windows It's October 22 today. A completely random date in the grand scheme of things (we Dutch lost a big naval battle to the Ming dynasty on October 22 1633), but it also happens to be the release date of the newest version of Windows - Windows 7. Since Windows is still the most popular desktop operating system out there, this is pretty big news.

I guess that depends on what you like in font rendering. After installing Windows 7 RC1 just to see what the hype was about, the very first thing I did was find out which settings in font rendering were the least aggravating for my eyes.

I still vastly prefer the result on my Gnome desktop at "best contrast" setting. But a lot of people seem to have no problems with being shown the rainbow at the edges of their letters. To each his own.
