The fonts that come with Linux are (IMHO) not as good as Windows fonts. The reason for this is that it takes a lot of time and high tech to create fonts. Naturally, there's a lot of R&D that goes into their creation.
If you are dissatisfied with the quality of the fonts supplied with your Linux distro, you can import the proprietary fonts from your Windows OS. There used to be a little program in Red Hat that did it all automatically, but maybe this was a little on the edge. He he... They (The Big Bad Software companies) might have a case for suing a Linux distro out of existence... Maybe that's why you don't see this little font installer program prominently displayed anymore... So you'll have to figure a way to import the fonts yourself from your Windows partition.
Also you might want to check and see if the anti-aliasing feature is enabled in your KDE desktop.
Or, as I have discovered, there are an infinite number of ways to tweak better performance out of X, and maybe this could be at the root of your dissatisfaction.
