um i wont even attempt to say they look the same.

cause XP's fonts just flat out suck hard. what is with the psycholdelic multicolored AA system they use.

Sorry a default gnome with some decent truetype fonts is FAR superior

I guess it depends on your display...

On my laptop, the fonts are FAR smoother in MS Windows than on X.org, even with the BCI and subpixel rendering. I'm using a 15.4" LCD at 1400x1050.

It's the opposite on my desktop with a 19" CRT... Have some issues with the kerning and some international characters (anything with acute/grave accents) at smaller sizes, but the fonts still look better.
