Wow! At first I thought either the display or my eyes are shite. After booting Linux on this Mac Mini, I can now confirm that Apple intentionally changed the system fonts to look like horseshit on non-retina displays.
I noticed it first on my old-af MacBook Air when I tried to revive it last year. F*** that corporation.
A friendly place for tooting. Run by the Kosmos open-source co-operative.
