    Do you use it?

    I'm talking about ClearType for XP & all MacOSX users & most Linux desktops.

    I don't use it because I have a crappy PC, and I don't want to take any longer to run notepad...

    I love it. I can't live without ClearType... somehow non-lcd screens seem so... harsh on the eyes..

    Of course, ClearType (in my opinion) rules!

    I thought it was blurry at first in Windows XP (I have a CRT) but it has grown so much on me that it looks terrible to turn it off. I have a G4 at work and have antialiasing enabled there as well. If I get a new Pocket PC, I'll enable antialiasing via a registry hack as well.

    It's great. At first, I thought it was fuzzy and turned it off immediately. Then I kept reading articles about how great it is and thought "surely not everyone can be wrong". Now I can't even work without it. Win2K looks absolutely horrible compared to my XP.

    I just use standard font smoothing on XP, just set and forget. ClearType definitely works well on laptops.

    Glad to see you all agree with me

    Ever since I got my laptop (which has XP on it) I can't stand to work without ClearType on. Even on CRTs I think it does wonders... just makes everything look wonderful! I can't believe it's not a standard setting... something must be wrong with MS's heads (well, we knew that, but somethingw orse)
