We've been telling Microsoft this for years. When MS Office 2k7 came out there was no option to disable it in the UI and despite system settings saying 'Don't use it' MSO used it anyway. Luckily there was an undocumented registry setting 'RespectSystemFontSmooth' that could be used. The name says it all - a plea to MSO to respect our choice.
Now along comes IE9 and they've done it again! No option to disable ClearType. People complained in the beta and got nowhere. Now the official release is out and no option. Any attempt to query this with MS is met with the usual [censored] 'Check your DPI, run the wizard, ClearType is wonderful'!
It's like fighting some rabid religious cult, [censored]! We don't want ClearType. I consider it injurious to my health. Why the hell are MS so blind to this issue and inconsiderate of our complaints?
Just because he can
