Get your head around the fact that fonts in Linux suck. End of story.

if linux fonts suck, what could be said about the mac fonts ...

hehe macs suck too

My Linux (Ubuntu 7.04) fonts are pretty much ok now. But it took this.
- Install Tahoma (stolen from an XP installation. It's not part of ms core fonts, why?)
- Fiddle with X config
- Fiddle with KDE config
- Fiddle with Firefox
- Fiddle with Skype 1.4 Beta

And OpenOffice still looks terrible.

The one thing where Linux works better than Windows is that you have fine control over what font sizes use sub-pixel rendering (Cleartype). In Windows it's either on or off. In Linux you can turn it off for 6-12 normal only (on for bold).
