I applied Shadowkiller and Tinkertool to shut down font smoothing.
I don't think Shadowkiller works on my OSX install, because the shadows are still there.
Tinkertool [i:284026fd5a]did[/i:284026fd5a] eliminate font smoothing though.
None of my benchmarks showed any improvement whatsoever. I would have thought that LetWindowsBloom and perhaps PiCalculator (where I enable the video refresh setting) would have shown some improvement. But they didn't. Neither did SpeedX, SpeedRun or Xbench show any improvement at all.
All that I saw was that my screen fonts looked crappier.
Animated features in the Finder were turned off as well, but it didn't result in windows displaying any faster, it just meant they popped up without the cool effect, but with the amount of time remaining the same.
What's up with that?
