Currently on my 10.6.8 iMac. It's unreal how easy the screen and the internet are to read on this thing ...

Why is that? Anybody?

The Leader liked larger fonts?



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

what resolutions do you have set on each?

I still love the look of Snow Leopard. I have a VM of it that I fire up once a week, and to me it represents the best UI they ever had.

Not enough info, but maybe you could pay a visit to sysPrefs/Monitor/Resolution and set it to Scaled/Looks like 1280x800.

Do you have font smoothing or something similar turned on?

Snow Leopard (i.e. OS X 10.6.8) used a much more legible system font than does more recent versions of the OS.



It is what it is.

Nothing to add to the thread but I just wanted to say I really dig your sig! I was at that show at Forest Hills, Queens, NYC and saw him do that solo of Third Stone from The Sun. Saw him numerous times when he was living in NYC and had a long conversation with him outside Columbia Records, but that is a story for another thread.
