Response to: Mac OS X Font rendering - phenomenal? Hardly!

I know I'm replying to a message that is a couple weeks old, but no one mentioned Tinkertool. I'm surprised you haven't discovered it. Tinkertool allows you to turn off anti-aliasing. It even (used to ?) lets you turn off font smoothing in Cocoa programs.


I think it's silly to talk about how much better some "other" system's crappy fonts are before doing some simple web research. OS X fonts can look just as crappy, if not crappier--if that's what you want.

    Tinkertool's site says the fonts cannot be adjusted in v10.2 and v10.3
