Since a few other 'bloggers have linked to it, Joel is wrong about anti-aliased text, but not for the reasons you think. He's wrong because he's lumping sub-pixel positioning in with anti-aliasing. Adobe figured this out years ago, back when they were playing with aliasing issues on early laser printers and added ways for fonts to hint that verticals need to get locked to a pixel line. And on the whole Microsoft ClearType thing, is everyone in this business so young that they no longer remember the Apple ][ hi-res mode?
