    This is new that I see, sorry if it's already covered: in my previous post, and noticed with others too, all seems OK if I'm logged in but if I'm logged out I see an extra link to the word drivers that I didn't add.

    Is it the forum's normal thing of advertising so that I should not worry about?

    I do not see that link logged in or out just on your screen shot.

    Same thing happens to me if I am signed out. BTW I am using Chrome Beta when this happens.

    EDIT: I think it only happens if you have Windows 8.1 like both of us do.

    I have the dreaded blurry text after I installed Win 8.1 Pro RTM! I tried clear type and display settings soooo many times!

    Why is it that nobody seems willing to post magnified screenshots of these blurry fonts? Seems kind of weird to me.. you'd think people would be anxious to prove their point.

    Here's a good IE\Chrome example to look at, no need for magnification > Users keep reporting blurry text in Windows 8 and 8.1 - Neowin

    I notice that image is from an early Windows 8 beta. There were no decent video drivers at that stage, and I don't believe hardware acceleration was even in play.

    IE nice and sharp on left, blurry Chrome & steam dlg on right.

    I don't understand what you complain about :P

    I see a slight difference, but just a slight one, and I see no real problem with any of the text in the picture.
    If I have the bug/had once I probably would never notice

I can confirm that M$ did NOT fix the blurry text problem. This is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE for an OS to be released with a bug that was known long before RTM. There could be legitimate reasons for this, though. The leaked version might not be the real RTM. It could also be a driver issue. ...
