I have tried the trick on a few Linux distributions and it looks nothing like Windows. I had to modify freetype-2.1.9/include/freetype/config/ftoption.h by commenting line 439 and re-compile freetype2. However, in PC-BSD all I need to do is just turn off anti-aliasing and restart KDE and you get the same result, exact look as in Windows. Of course using fonts such as Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Timew New Roman, the good old Windows fonts. These fonts are used by many web sites so the web sites display correctly.
