It's called Font Anti-Aliasing, and it's NOT a MS-patented thing by
any stretch of the imagination. ClearType is a MS thing that does
exactly what anti-aliasing does, only with a funny buzz-word in hopes
of suing someone.

System settings -> Appearance -> Fonts
Turn on the anti-aliasing for it (should be a checkbox at the bottom)
and restart Xorg.
It's not much, but it's what I call 127.0.0.1
