Linux The new Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 brings recent Linux user interface improvements to the PowerPC architecture. Smooth, anti-aliased fonts and the clean, refined style of Red Hat's Blue Curve theme make this a beautiful creation to look at. There are screenshots here, though they aren't big enough to really do it justice.

Sounds great so far! I'm running RedHat on my PC, with YDL being based on it can run almost the same system on my iBook.

IMHO freetype2 has already surpassed Quartz for on-screen fonts (don't care too much about print). Quartz is ignoring ttf hinting which makes the fonts look more fuzzy than necessary.
