While a quick Google of “cleartype vista” indicates that there is no universal warmth to Windows Vista’s ClearType support, I enjoy reading text in Vista more than I do in XP–even with the tuner powertoy for the down-level OS. I’d like to better understand Vista’s integration with ClearType in more detail; so, if you have a good link to share, thanks in advance.
This improved user experience around text and much-improved power management (i.e. extended battery life) have given my work laptop an unexpected boost in usability. There are still a set of issues that prevent me from recommending Vista generally to folks, and I’m hoping that SP1 later this year will address these completely. (I can always hope, right. )-Craig
