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?

At work, a 25.5" Samsung 2693HM (TN panel, set for sRGB - is too electric by default for web work) hooked to a Windows Vista machine, and a Samsung SyncMaster 213T (PVA panel) hooked to a Mac Mini, running 10.5.x.

The PVA panel is not as bright as the TN panel, and the pixels are smaller (they run the same vertical resolution despite being different sizes). I run at 1600x1200 (in portrait mode) on the PVA and 1920x1200 on the TN. I like the PVA panel better, even if is is dimmer - it's more consistent.

I have them networked and use Synergy and SynergyKM to share mouse and keyboard, if anyone is curious.

At home I use an old 22" CRT (Mitsubishi) with Windows 7 RC, and occasionally Ubuntu or Mac OS X. I run that at 1600x1200@85Hz, on all platforms. CRTs rock for gaming. No flat panel I've seen compares (I haven't seen the true 120Hz panels in person yet, hoping they can replace the CRT).
