Discuss about font rendering, discuss patches and fonts.
Windows font rendering is superior.
What's the deal with the blurriness on linux, it makes it look like a fisher price OS with headache inducing shit smeared in lines across a page.
... and that is if Xorg starts without any hassle.
>>linux has shit font rendering
>>this is what freetards actually believe
Your problem is that you still think this is 1995 and we Linux people still need to copy fonts from MSWindows and that the Font Deuglification FAQ is still current.
I'm primarily a Windows users and have been since I started using computers, but sometimes I do my browsing/reading in an Ubuntu VM just because the font rendering is so much more crisp than it is in Windows.
Why are winfags even in this thread? Isn't this a thread for nice font rendering?
hmmm ok (why did you use jpg?)
I'm a winfag with subhuman font-rendering btw
Hell I can't tell the difference between any of these
Freetype2, ttf-autohint, and cairo are fucking godsends.
MacType makes the font rendering on Windows better. I just wish it would get an update. Hell, I can't even find source for it anymore, the Mercurial repo is dead.
Anyone know where it could be found?
Could use newer versions of the aforementioned libraries. Also, font replacement with OpenType.
But yes, GNU/Linux could definitely do better than Windows in the Desktop Publishing sector. Maybe not Mac OS X tier, but close.
Can we also discuss typography as it relates to technology here?
And for serif, I replace Times Roman with Linotype's Times Ten. It is a Times variant that is better for body copy (e.g. small sizes, like 16pt and below).
