linux fonts look like cr@p


why, in this day and age, Linux fonts still look like crap?
I thought that Adobe patent on hinting the font rasterization had expired years ago.

the only font that looks ok is Liberation.

and no, anti-aliasing is not an option (for low res displays) in my view.

edit: I've just installed mscorefonts and, well, they also seem ok.

Have you checked out the custom designed ubuntu fonts?

Far from crap.
They are quite elegant.


Cheers.
