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.

Both Algorithms are ClearType.

There is an interview with the creator of ClearType, he claims the differences are because Apple didn't implement it correctly.

Apple got ClearType patent as part of the Apple-Microsoft cross licensing deal.
