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.

it will go away in the future.
when you take printing as a reference, 600 dpi are enough to avoid aliasing-issues
on large high-resolution screens we have more than 200dpi today
on realy small ones we are already beyound 2k dpi

it's only a matter of time till scaling-problems are solved (and we have the bandwidth to drive those screens)
