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.

I hope so, and it looks possible. The other manufacturers seem to follow whatever Apple does, so tablets and mobile phones are already going for higher resolutions, and in addition LCD prices have become very low lately, with even 22" IPS screens being quite affordable these days.

They were going for higher resolutions even without Apple influence:

However the release of the 3rd gen iPad should hopefully kick start those other manufacturers lagging behind on the display race.
