Are we ever going to get good looking fonts in Swing?
Swing has had many complaints over the years, but I really see big improvements in latest versions that make the SWT vs Swing arguments less relevant.
However, one thing in Swing that sticks out like a sore thumb is the poor font rendering. I mean, on my W2K box the fonts look really amateurish, especially size 8-10 pt, the "8" character looks chopped up and reminds me of the resolution on my old Commodore 64.
Are there any plans to bring font rendereing in Swing that would be comparable to native toolkits? Right now it's really quite obvious (and why isn't it using the right font in JFileChooser?)
