Description of problem:
antialiasing makes little font unreadable. you should add some option to enable
antialiasing only for bigger fonts (this is how works windows, and it is the
optimal choice, imho)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
On the other hand, Mac OS X always antialiases.
It, to some extent is a matter of preference.
But in our case, rendering nice looking antialiased
fonts with free software is a whole lot easier than
rendering nice looking non-antialiased fonts, so
there is a strong inclination to antialiasing.
If you try turning off antialiasing in the GNOME
font properties dialog, I don't think you'll be
happy with the result, even at small point sizes.
