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.

No, you nincompoop. Windows 8 & metro is for desktops, laptops, and tablets. I'm not rotating my screen on my laptop, why should I suffer?

Also, you make the DPI retina display levels for the tablet and you aren't going to notice any issue with cleartype. I mean, you would expect MS win 8 arm tablets to try and compete with the ipad, right?
