Linux "It seems as if a new Linux-based operating system is born every day, with each facing the challenge of justifying its existence in a field that's already rather crowded with mature Linux distributions boasting active user bases and organized bodies to back them. But one relatively young Linux distribution worth keeping an eye on is Foresight Linux, a desktop-oriented distribution that hit its 1.0 release milestone at the end of January. What sets Foresight apart from the rest of the fledgling distro pack is the software management framework on which its built."

You know, I tried everything to make fonts look good, even installed hacked freetype libraries, but with no luck. Fonts always get extra bold and some characters mix with others. Cannot even touch OSX quality ;)

Well, if you install stock Ubuntu and do the trick I've indicated, you'll have OSX-quality rendering...of course, it helps if you also install Mac fonts (such as Lucida Mac)! Check these out:
