Yes, Tahoma is part of the webcore fonts package in PC-BSD. It is nice to use Tahoma for toolbars, and buttons for instance.

I had the problem of fonts in just about every Linux distro I used (Gentoo, Debian, Kurumim, Mandriva and Ubuntu), and also on FreeBSD. Fonts are either aliased or anti-aliased, and the only tradeoff is excluding a size range from being anti-aliased ;)

PC-BSD has Bytecode Interpreter on, fonts are aliased for most of them on this screenshot, and I this it looks good. What do you think? I think it looks nicer than if everything were antialiased and hardly readable. These are the same rules as those of Windows actually.
