@DeathByVisualStudio:Forcing people to use ClearType the way it works now on tablet displays that will be turned 90 degrees allot really wouldn't do any good to the image on Win8. It looks horrible that way on my IPS panel. I couldn't use my monitor rotated in portrait mode for more than a few minutes with ClearType on but in LandScape mode it looks great.
I'm not a super coder or anything, but I have to imagine that, at present, it is possible to write software code that a. Detects orientation, b. Determines optimal font rendering methodology based on display type and orientation, then c. Turns Cleartype on/off on the fly. It's software.
