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.

GOOD. clear type is a bad idea. especially with screens getting more resolution.. and displays being rotatable. sometimes i have to use my iPad at work, and i have to use citrix to connect to windows sometimes. and i have to rotate the screen till clear type looks correct.

i always thought clear type looked bad anyways. theres color fringing on text, and i know it's not very noticeable, but i still notice it, every single time.
