A number of exciting technologies come together in GNOME 2.12 that will set the standard for free software desktops to come. Here is a sample of some of the outstanding work that has gone into GNOME thanks to its many contributors.

And don't try to tell me existing linux font rendering technologies look the same as ClearType<p>

They don't at all. Fonts on Windows hurt my eyes. Fonts on Linux are softer and a lot less jagged. Personally I don't see the big deal with the fonts on Linux. They have looked better than Windows fonts to me for a while.

You can argue they are better, fine, I don't care. But they do NOT come out being rendered the same as ClearType.

You are right, they are not the same. I just don't get how anyone likes fonts on Windows better. They look horrible in comparison. I guess it is just a matter of opinion.
