You're not alone. I think ClearType is beautiful. It achieves the contrast of aliased with three times the detail. I mean, that's what every filtering scheme hopes to ultimately achieve, right? If so, ClearType sets the bar.

And according to the ClearType patent, the glyphs are only resized horizontally/vertically. No points are moved, so the tails on your 'y' will still look as curvy as ever.
