comment Font smoothing is wrong after Mavericks update on MacBook Pro with high-res display (not retina)
I'm afraid to be right, but I think this is the real answer. I also suspect it has to do with an internal decision to make new macs look prettier at the expense of old macs looking uglier. I wanted to see if it was only on my mac or other macs as well. My colleagues didn't notice the different, but then I'm the only one who had a bit better resolution, and I could see the difference.

I can't find any old screenshots of the menu bar. Hmm it seems very strange. I know it's different but I can't explain or know exactly what is different, appart from the fact that fonts are thicker now. Thanks for the help. Can you take a screenshot of the comments here? Mine look like this and they are hard to read: cl.ly/image/3n032c0y3f33

It drives me crazy. It is too smooth. Look at the "F" from File, the left side is blurry (too much smoothing). It used to look very sharp on my Mac before. Here's more details on the same font, same browser (Chrome), after & before: cl.ly/image/0q1n3u2I063q After (1st image) looks more fat, more clumpy and hard to look at. 2nd one looks nice and crisp.

comment Cannot install Adobe CS5 - install hangs at calculating time
not sure, don't think I changed anything since I got my Mac 2 days ago, but I managed to install the trial version of Photoshop. Will try again with the whole CS5 collection, hope it works. I don't know why it behaved strange.
