I find that fonts on my Feisty look better than on Windows XP, but
that's a matter of taste. I think the way Feisty renders fonts is close
to the way they look on Mac OS X.
In your font settings dialog box, try selecting "Best shapes" in "Font
rendering" section, then click on "Details..." and select "Grayscale" in
"Smoothing" section and "Slight" in "Hinting". Close the dialogs and
restart GDM (or just reboot), see if that helps.
Try Insonsolata OpenType for a monospace font
Try Delicious as the default application font and Delicious Heavy as the
active title font <http://www.josbuivenga.demon.nl/delicious.html>
Fonts look amazing on Feisty (to me anyway :-)
