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: http://avi.alkalay.net/2007/01/freetype-with-bytecode-interpreter.html 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.
