Fonts in linux


Hi,
Why are fonts in KDE worse than in windows?
While i type this characters like 'E' doesn't look like 'the alphabet E' and in general the fonts look faded.
Even the fonts in pdf are faded.
Is there any solution ?

Thanks

See here for how to add true type fonts in linux.
The howto was written for RH8 but it should be the same for every distro.
