I'm stuck at work with a fucking Windows laptop, and Windows font rendering makes me want to vomit. Oh how I miss my Mac back at home. Even Ubuntu's font rendering is better.

Is there any way to make it look like my beloved, smooth Mac OSX fonts? Or should I sharpen the knife with which I'm gonna cut my wrist soon? Help me /g/ pls.

gdipp and change font rendering mode to 10/11
>>
>>51581167
where do you find a fucking up to date gdipp repo? all the ones i can find are 2+ years inactive because of the google code bullshit
>>
>>51580607
That's why I use Ubuntu most of the time because how good the font rendering looks.

But what else that might have something to do with it is that your mac uses a higher resolution screen.

>>51580943
This anon is using a lower res screen.

>>51581330
I'm not sure why that image looked so blurry.
>>
>>51581350
Does it come in a better font? Not really making it look great now.
>>
>>51581220
It still werks

>>51581350

Holy fuck could you be any more gay?

Just off yourself faggot.

I'm using Droid-Sans which is one of the best fonts.
>>
>>51580370
Why is Mac's font rendering so soft?

Sharp fonts are were we are at. Get rid of this blurry shit.
>>
>>51581330
>bravo Ubuntu
On any other Linux just install infinality, not hard

Ever heard of ClearType, you mongoloid?

>>51581350
Looks great. I'm jelly.

Ever heard of "it sucks", asshat?

windows font rendering is shit at low resolutions
from 2560x1600 or so, it starts to look decent
either way, microsoft needs to fucking get a grip
>>
>>51581657
Cleartype is shit, end yourself idiot.
>forcing shit on a pixel grid and deform everything

>>51581519
You can have correctly rendered fonts and have them not be blurry.

>>51581220
Get version 0.9.1 beta, it's the latest. Yes it's old, but it's still working.
Make sure to fully read what the various configuration options in the config.xml file do, it's available there: https://code.google.com/p/gdipp/wiki/SETTING_Beta
As a rule of thumb, if you get display issues in ANY application, exclude it from gdipp hooking.

Also it doesn't work in:
- software or stuff that doesn't use gdi for rendering (see: hardware accelerated web browsers — you can disable Direct2D in Firefox and keep hardware acceleration though ; Visual Studio 2012+ ; Office 2013+ ; Metro shit — All that shit uses Windows Presentation Foundation and gdipp doesn't know how to hook into that)

Other than that it works well.
>>
>>51581437
>not gedit
>>
>>51581657
But that is ClearType rendering. It only works well with fonts tailored for it because it can't do antialiasing properly and depends on hinting to avoid artifacts. I think it just does a scanline subpixel render with no AA and then runs a horizontal color fringing filter (basically a light blur) which gives it something resembling horizontal antialiasing.

Before DirectWrite was a thing webdevs came up with tons of CSS hacks to trigger the legacy Windows grayscale renderer instead of ClearType so unhinted fonts would at least get some crude 2-way antialiasing.

1) I barely see a difference, certainly not enough to be such a bitch about it
2)

Yup, that font rendering looks just fine, no idea what everyone is complaining about
