Yes, I think it is the compression that makes it less clear.
I made a screenshot with a little brighter gtk theme, uncompressed, about 1 mb here:
There you can judge again.
But it is a fact that some people like cleartype, and some don't. I like it because it shows the characters in better contrast, which makes text easier to read during a long time. (i prefer the non-anti-alias terminus fonts the best, but I don't like that in every application, so that is where the cleartype patches help me, btw cleartype is free now, i think)
btw, support a bit harder, they are behind with 2 goals against Frankfurt

The patched (with cleartype) packages for x86_64 can be found here --> http://www.pupsys.net/files/patched-fontsystem-13.1-x86_64.tar.gz
Thanks for providing this stuff. Is it the jpg compression or do the fonts look kinda blurry with these patches?
PS: After looking at your browser I should go to Stuttgart and support the demonstrators...
