Which fonts?  All of the fonts I use on Fedora (pretty much all the 
defaults) look significantly better than a default Windows desktop, and 
better than OS X, IMO.

Just yesterday I was looking at this:

The author believes that the BCI examples are much better.  Some of the 
examples are maybe slightly better, but mostly just seem awful and 
jagged to me.  I prefer the AA fonts, with or without BCI.  Commenters 
appear to largely agree with me.

I'm sure that opinions vary, but I really don't think fonts on Fedora 
are bad.
