cleartype hurts my eyes !! please make an exact windows XP font display option

Like my title already says, please make a vote for "NO CLEARTYPE"

and exact windows XP style font display in windows 7

I've tried all possible pro-edits but a 100% match isn't possible, I therefore switched back to my xp setup..

(leaving my brand new windows 7 64bit system with 8GB of ram...)


M$ Please give us a choice/patch to an exact XP style font en color display..(white is also too bright / harsch in windows 7..)









Thanks for your support,  my monitor is in it's native resolution my graphic card has the latest drivers etc..

(i'm a web/graphic designer for more than 10 years now, and I am familiar with all pc-tweaks possible..)

I finetuned the brightness/gamma settings slightly  and after that i went trough al the reg edits found at

this link:


windows 7 is now almost completely stripped off cleartype...

the white/brightness display is now better, probably me new grapics card an ATI 6850 1 GB ram has "more color display punch" than my older ati rage 128



I still hope MS comes with an official update/functionality te strip the cleartype function out of windows 7.
