Graphics, User Interfaces The Engineering 7 weblog has an item about the improvements made in the ClearType font rendering technology which has been included in Windows since Windows XP. While I won't go too deeply into that post, I did figure it was a good opportunity to talk about font antialiasing in general; which type do you prefer?

The one thing like better about Windows

Yup, I like ClearType too. Admittedly I've gotten used to the Mac way, but with the subpixel rendering everything just looks amazingly sharp--I love it.

As for color fringing due to not being "synced" with your LCD, I think (but I'm not sure) that that's becoming less of a problem, because I haven't noticed it much recently. Maybe the color order on LCDs has become more uniform.

Oh wait... there's one more thing I like better about Windows: I like Explorer better than Finder (though with Vista it's stretching it).
