I mean specifically the horizontal and vertical lines. OSX's rendering of 
diagonal lines is of course better. For fonts it depends... my experience 
on OSX was that Courier was too blurry as well. Ideally, fonts would be 
just a little bit smoothed... only on their diagonal lines. However, we 
often don't have that level of control.
