On Not | Mo Chit

This aggression will not stand. Scoble is of the opinion that ClearType somehow is vastly superior to OS X's anti-aliasing. I don't know what his Kool-aid is laced with, but that's not what I'm seeing over here.

Disclaimer: I don't know enough about typography and anti-aliasing to express anything other than my novice opinion. I also am no fan of Apple, per se.

Here are some screenshots that I took on my Windows XP box and our G4 machine.


Looks like Windows completely chokes on anti-aliasing Japanese text, or that's one absolute crap anti-aliasing job. The first picture is different story. The windows anti-aliasing isn't terrible but I'm reluctant to hand it a win, and I'm certainly not going to say that it's "FAR, FAR" better than the anti-aliasing on OS X.

Anyway, like Judge Judy says, "Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining."

Scoble replies.
I try to get in the last word..
