SuSE9.0 - Antialiasing


Hi this is my first post here .

I did a FTP install of SuSE9.0, I choose to install KDE too.

I have been a windows user for many years and this is my first move to Linux, used FreeBSD as a local server.
What I found weird is the kind of fonts used by my KDE desktop.
They are antialiased.
In pratice they are not cleaned as the one used by my win2k.
If I remove the antialiasing then fonts are orrible.

Should it possible to have fonts to look as clean as in windows ?

Freetype2 has been installed.

Thanks in advance,
N.

p.s.
In case I didn't post too much info I'll post more.

Open Office replaces the screen fonts Albany, Andale Sans UI and Arial with Bitstream Vera Sans.
