On-line discussions comparing Apple and Microsoft rendering

Googling turns up discussions of whether Apple or FreeType font rendering is better or worse than ClearType/Microsoft rendering. What these discussions seem to neglect is the difference between legibility and readability. Microsoft’s rendering (at least in XP) is legible but unreadable; if books looked like that, you wouldn’t want to buy them, and you certainly would not treasure them.
