I dont like cleartype neither, sometimes get difficult to read
it takes 20 to 30 minutes reading to get huge eyes irritation - the veins in my eyes become irritated, red and visible - I don't know how that's called in English - maybe "red eyes", but it's something I cannot fake (as doctor House would say, i.e. the patient eyes don't lie) and it's not subjective. It takes 1-1.5 hours to get terrible headache as well. At the same time no ClearType and I can read 12 hours straight - not a single blood vessel irritated in my eyes and my head is completely clear. I guess people with LCD/LED cannot spot the difference, but I am sure it affects them subconsciously - I mean even they cannot consciously realize how blurry it is the blurriness is there after all. Win7 is possible to at least partially disable ClearType, but not fully as how that's possible (and even by default) with WinXP. Most strange to me is that there is no broad discussion about that.
