fonts don't look friendly


Hi,everyone.

Fonts in Linux seem not as good-looking as those in Windows. The edges are not smooth enough, I can clearly recognize the little squares that make them up.
Well, any ideas on how to make it prettier?
Thanx in advance

You may want to enable hinting. Look in the "Configure Desktop" -> "Fonts" kde configuration.
