Description of problem:
When you install Fedora Core, you have to choose your screen type. If you select
an LCD screen, the default configuartion for fonts should be to use subpixel
smoothing as it gives better results on LCD screens
Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2003-10-19 20:39:27 EDT
In general, I don't think the subpixel rendering looks better; depending
on how hinting is done, it either makes almost no noticeable effect
or shows very strong fringes. I don't use it myself on my LCD.
