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

Definitly a case of different strokes for different folks. I hate looking at not anti-aliased fonts. Turning off font smoothing is one thing that can be done. Another is to tweak the Font Smoothing Style so that you can control the algorithm a bit.

One thing you might try is to tweak your defaults. Try:

defaults write -g AppleAntiAliasingThreshold 128

where 128 is the point size you want. Log out and back in (a required step) and you should have non aliased fonts.
