I know that JDK6u10 is using the native rasterizer for fonts now, and I've seen that the feedback has been very positive (http://forums.java.net/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=37260&tstart=45 ). Well, maybe its just me, but the fonts look much stronger than they should be, in fact they almost look blurry. It doesnt match the native Windows look at all.
I've attatched a screenshot from Windows XP that shows a JDK6u10-beta-b23 JFileChooser, versus a file dialog from NotePad. You can see the text in the NotePad version is much lighter and easier to read.
Am I alone in this opinion?
And if the native rasterizer is in use, why the difference. Is there a contrast setting that needs adjusting?
