This is Microsoft's site on ClearType. There's some good information there.
Does that explain why i can't look at a default Windows theme all day, but i can do it with my own theme that's based on shades of green (=no more pure white surfaces).
PeterV, post a screen capture!
I just love you, Bill Hill.
Well, he didn't really explain how ClearType works, just people's reactions to it. That was disappointing.
I'm also a little surprised that Bill didn't mention that this isn't really a new technology, and that sub-pixel font rendering was being used way back on the Apple II computers (created by the geek-messiah himself, Steve Wozniak), and many applications and
systems since. Don't get me wrong, ClearType was LONG overdue, but I'm not sure why Microsoft is co-opting the technology and not giving Woz his due. It was a righteous hack.
I've been using about the same color scheme since I started using Win95 extensively.
I just find it hard staring at RGB(255,255,255) all day and in the default setup it's the background for every text-based program.
You can have a look over here : ...
I might add that i've only switched to WinXP on this machine on Monday. Our central IT-team didn't allow it earlier because the standard profile is Win2k.
So it's just XP in classic mode, I haven't spend much time tweaking it.
