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.

To each his own. I find the color fringing from sub-pixel rendering VERY noticeable, so I always explicitly switch my systems to grayscale-only.

I definitely agree that consistency and choice are important though.
