infinality is a set of Freetype patches that really makes fonts look astonishing and is available on most distributions. Why on earth distributions don’t use it as default it really strange, since default font rendering is utter shit most of the time. A distribution with the infinality patches renders fonts better than OS X and Windows, bar none can compete. Why can’t they commit upstream? Does shitty fonts break?
I really have no idea
