xft2 not antialiased fonts look ugly

Hi all,

I have desactivated the antialiasing for fonts >= 8 and <= 16 for xft2 but now my fonts are very ugly.

My local .fonts.conf looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<match target="font" >
<test compare="more" name="size" qual="any" >
<test compare="less" name="size" qual="any" >
<edit mode="assign" name="antialias" >

but now the fonts that dont use antialiasing look very ugly. You can take a look on it here:

Please help me to solve this problem, i have a (lapto) LCD screen, and it's very hard to read the antialiased fonts, and i realy want back that old but easy to read fonts
