Is there a way to make the Modern grayscale font antialiasing replace ClearType altogether? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I much prefer the new Modern/Metro way of displaying fonts, I really like looking at grayscale font antialiasing.  It's much more pleasing to the eyes to me.  It makes me think of reading text in a book more than reading text on a computer monitor.

    I know that a lot of people prefer ClearType font rendering, but it has always been an eye sore for me as the colored edges make me think of an Apple II--artifacting, like a bad display.  http://olduse.net/img/appleshot.png  You also saw this on Atari 8bit computers a lot, a blue/brown/purple sort of thing.

    Anyway, I was wondering whether there might be some sort of cheat/hack/something that would make grayscale font antialiasing replace the standard ClearType antialiasing altogether.  That would be awesome if that were possible.

    Thanks.
