Iyt looks worse, as in the pixels look blockier, but sometimes this is 
better for UV mapping a low resolution texture, because you can better 
see how the pixels are distributed and see the resolution of the 
textures used.
Ity would be nice to have this optioonal somewhere. Probably as an 
openGL oprion.
