Windows Okay, so this one actually bothers me quite a deal in the Windows 8 consumer preview: the fonts in Metro look fuzzy - they look like fonts on Mac OS X. Because of the Mac OS X resemblance, I had assumed that Metro switched to a shape-accurate rendering method, like Mac OS X uses, but as it turns out, it's a little less exotic than that.

So THAT'S what's wrong with fonts in W8.

Sub-pixel rendering makes fonts look wonderful on LCD screens, and the color fringing is barely noticeable. It's absence is immediately apparent to me, however.

It's little things that bug me. The Start Screen is very useful, but poor font rendering almost makes me switch back.
