No, I am not trying to start a flame war. :-)
I understand, that this is purely matter of taste. Both Joel & Jeff have stated their opinions on the matter. I for one love the way the Mac displays fonts and whenever trying to read a longer text on my PC I get frustrated and employ a hack:
- print it into OneNote - apparently the act of printing it changes the algorithm used and the resulting picture has a much better look (makes kind of sense due to the different resolution).
What I really want is to have the Apple Font Rendering used everywhere in Windows. Currently I use the ClearType Tuning PowerToy to crank up the thickness of the font to the max, but I am not really satisfied. The above mentioned articles from Joel & Jeff explain why that is.
So basically I am looking for an alternative to ClearType. I do not mind spending money for it if it works. Any recommendations?
