Personally, I can't stand ClearType, and have it disabled on all my Win7 machines.

However, as far as I'm aware, IE9 doesn't actually use ClearType, but uses its own rendering technology, which I absolutely despise - to the point where I ended up having to set ChromeFrame as the default rendering engine for it, and deal with all the problems that causes.

I am interested to know which technology IE10 uses, ClearType (which I can disable) or the same specific techniques used in IE9, which can't be disabled.

Regardless, now that I know there is a problem with VS2010, I can't install it anyway.
