Jagged fonts

Čt 31 března 2005

Tim Bray blogged about his gripes with Mac OS X and then among the reasons why not to unswitch from Mac OS X he mentions "jaggedy spidery fonts" and "fast start". Did he every heard about FreeType or here? Since I have installed msttcorefonts on my Debian, I have never seen any jagged fonts at all. And with fontconfig and its support in KDE, I have never had problems with installing all beautiful fonts I can find (this is my favorite for writing).

Concerning the fast start. Suspend/resume is supported in 2.6.* Linux kernel and there is even more stable and robust kernel patch swsuspend2, which is not dependent on sometimes rather hairy ACPI support in Linux.
