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, Apple's solution is worse in every meaningful way. It only looks better if your squint or have a very high-DPI screen. Fortunately though Apple are moving to very-high DPI screens, where they are no longer handicapped by their poor font-rendering.
