In addition to the BitBlt VM changes, the sub-pixel anti-aliasing also
requires the optional FreeType Plus (sub-pixel anti-aliasing) package to be
(that is FreeTypeSubPixelAntiAliasing-tween.3.mcz , or later). As long as
this package is not loaded, sub-pixel anti-aliasing will never happen.
However the BitBlt changes also give gamma / contrast adjustment, which
might be useful on the XO's display.
I am guessing here, but it is possible that using different contrast
settings for monochrome and colour modes may give good results.
I got to see an XO machine , for the first time, last Saturday and fell in
love with it.
It's the flip up 'ears' that do it for me, so cute :)
