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.

It was because most displays at the time of it creation were quite low res (1024x768 was standard laptop res in 2000 when ClearType prototype was created).

I think with the 300DPI ish screens it doesn't really need it.
