Oh I see. So far as I know font smoothing was turned off for fonts under 10pt by default or something like that, but it was switched on for larger fonts (like the menus). Only Mac OS X brought in smoothing for all of it. idk. If you want to run the old Mac systems under emulation, try SheepShaver - it's fun.
Btw - how much does the coupon get me off a purchase? I would put it in to find out, but I'm afraid that once I put it in (even for testing) I won't be able to use it again!
