Behold! Dump ClearType, get FreeType instead!

The user preferences didn’t speak a lot to me but there are only three settings and they seem to set the boldness: vladg.com/2009/03/make-windows…

There seems to be a lot of online discussion regarding the legibility of ClearType text, but without taking into account he readability of text.

In any case, ClearType seems to depend too much on the design of the font, for font hobbyists to get any fun. I am curious what the results were like with Adobe Type Manager.
