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?

Depends

It really depends. I prefer readability to shape accuracy but shape accuracy is more important for DTP work, although it's quite annoying when you're not doing DTP work. The best compromise would be to use shape accuracy only in DTP applications and err on the side of readability otherwise.
