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.

saying "razor ClearType sharp as ever" is a bit funny to me - I've always found it extremely blurry, hard to read and causing headache after only a few minutes of trying to read text displayed with CT. On the other hand - CT and any other smooth technique turned off - razor sharp fonts pleasant to read
