I'm using Freetype, XFT and Cairo I've got from this how-to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=343670 , and fonts look way different. Without hinting they look very similar to OSX, with full hinting it's like Windows' ClearType but much better.

This screenshot shows text without hinting and with full hinting, it's using subpixel rendering.
