The fonts under Ubuntu is better than Kubuntu and windows XP.

did the Ubuntu team tweak it or are they default Gnome font settings?

I think they are of the default settings, although you can always add more with msttcorefonts.

Fonts are part of the X window system, so i'm guessing it's xorg that's actually improving fonts. Already with edgy, xorg has a kind of auto font finding feature, which needs to be used on the next release for even better font support. To get the best fonts in edgy still requires fixing the fonts which are still not setup correctly.
