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.

So THAT'S what's wrong with fonts in W8.


Not in W8, but in Metro-W8. Otherwise Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display -> Adjust ClearType text.

Of course. I had forgotten that I meandered into the ClearType tuner and changed it. Well, I changed it back already. Much nicer.
