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.

But doing sub-pixel rendering will still increase the smoothness even if it's smooth to begin with?

Personally I prefer the Adobe and Apple sub-pixel rendering.

Maybe Adobe slightly above Apple. But the most interesting is either against freetype or cleartype.
