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.

I would like to point out that greyscale rendering is not ClearType.

Greyscale rendering was "font smoothing" option in XP.

Cleartype is about using the 3 subpixels in any TFT display to triple the effective DPI of your monitor.
