Windows Okay, so this one actually bothers me quite a deal in the Windows 8 consumer preview: the fonts in Metro look fuzzy - they look like fonts on Mac OS X. Because of the Mac OS X resemblance, I had assumed that Metro switched to a shape-accurate rendering method, like Mac OS X uses, but as it turns out, it's a little less exotic than that.

Is it possible to adjust the font rendering in the control panel? I am not a Windows user, but it seems like there should be a way to adjust the font rendering.

Windows 8 makes it harder to get into the control panel. Many options are missing.

Cleartype is a killer feature of Windows. I do hope it returns.

by harder, I think you mean "different" and options are missing..however, it is a preview OS.
