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?

To get this, you need patches for Cairo, LibXft, and FontConfig.

Or use Ubuntu which ships with those installed and enabled.

Cool; I didn't know Ubuntu was shipping with these patches by default now. However, they really ought to be trying to convince the projects to merge these patches upstream.
