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?

A must read article about font rendering :

http://www.antigrain.com/research/font_rasterization/

It explains WHY Microsoft and Apple made the renderers like they are. And exactly how they render differently. I personally prefer the one of Apple because i can freely scale my font without it getting bolder or making huge jumps.
