    Nope, it's an older MBP. And I've not installed ubuntu on it, it does not belong to me even though I'm the only one and will be the only one using it
    I've got a 29" iMac on my desk too. This one is cool

    Yeah, 2 different apps opened side by side and twice as big as on the MBP. I kept my 4 desktops habits though

    Eheh, I'm used to assign specific apps to specific desktops. Just handy, at least for me.

    Try to adjust the font hinting settings. Since I'm on the MATE desktop I couldn't begin to tell you where those settings are, but it's within a screen that lets you adjust fonts for your theme. I know I've seen it. Higher hinting will give you sharper (but slightly thinner) fonts.
