'Nicer' is subjective. I don't actually like the patented rendering, I
prefer the non-patented. The above isn't actually referring to the
patented stuff, anyway - just whether subpixel hinting is enabled by
default. I think it's a sensible idea; surely LCD displays are
sufficiently widely used by now that we could default to subpixel
hinting in the GNOME font configuration, and that would be the best
choice for the majority of users?
