Thanks for posting that, Hugo.
I'm sure it's just a matter of time until this problem is fixed by
nVidia and/or X.org. nVidia wants to sell their cards, and people
want eye candy, and people want Linux, so we probably just need (sigh)
some more patience.
I don't know if it's actual or the power of suggestion, but I've
noticed that the fonts with X.org look awfully nice. I don't have a
screenshot to compare with XF86, but... :) And, anyway, it's the
future, so since it's working so well, why not go ahead and switch?
