It is also very depending on what monitor you look at it. On my Laptop I 
switched all AA/Hinting off (using good Monitor optimized fonts of 
course) because the distance to the LCD is quite low. Here any AA makes 
me a headache. On my Desktop Display the distance is much larger and the 
resolution also a bit higer, so that AA actually helps in some cases and 
doesn't make a headache.
