    Re: Debian vs. Linux Mint Debian

    But only if you want to customize UI elements that looks ugly (like default themes/settings on LXDE and Xfce, font rendering, etc.).

    Re: Yet Another 'Ubuntu Font Rendering on Debian' Question

    For the information I found the cause for the different spacing. It's because I used Saucy fontconfig (2.10.93) instead of Raring (2.10.2) and it could be an upstream improvement.

    Re: Who Has the Best Font Rendering??

    As said before, the best way to improve font rendering on screen is having a good monitor. The more DPI (or better PPI) it has, the better it is. At some high DPI values there will be no need for...
