Apple killed off subpixel antialiasing in 10.14 and called it a “refinement”. Not sure they know what that word means.

The refinement is that now no one will buy a MacBook Air because the text is gonna look like shit.

Well, it is better this way on a retina screen. And MacBook Air users must suffer, according to Apple.

"Really want that MBA? How's the text look now? What's that, you'd rather have a 13" MBP?" Refinement to their marketing.

It’s not just about the MBA too. A LOT of people use their Macs hooked up to non-4K displays

To be clear, having all NSViews backed by layers is a good thing. Framing loss of font smoothing as a refinement is 🙄

They don’t even make a HiDPI display comparable to the 34” UltraWide I use, and I guess time to stop eyeing the 38” ones…
