Do you use ClearType with a CRT monitor?

Umm. You guys do realize that Cleartype slows down Windows, right?

For proof, just try scrolling a website with it on, then off.

Whoops. Just tried it myself. Doesn't do it anymore. Guess they've fixed the issue in a past patch.

(Been a while since I've tried ClearType)

Yep. I turned it on for the first time last night. Running a 19" CRT with 1152x864x85 resolutation. Looks lovely and crisp! :woot:

I used to run it when I used a lower resolution, but now that I'm running 1600x1024 I simply can't use it. It makes small text too blurry to read. I do use standard font smoothing though, which is great on certain fonts. Bitstream Vera Sans will be anti-aliased using standard font smoothing at all sizes, it simply looks great.

ive just turned it on to give it another go..........ive set the contrast at 1000 and well my "handwriting" looks very blurry but i can deal with that for now

. ill have to see how my vision does and how tired i get

OT: BTW This thread's topic about 20% bandwidth stealing is accually true. Ive done the tweak and i browse internet alot faster. Neowin loads alot faster as well.
