ReactOS Tahoma Bold is different than Windows Tahoma Bold

Post by NovaDelta » Fri Oct 05, 2018 6:20 pm

I was using ReactOS the other day and from what I could see the title bar looked a bit off.
It was actually the font, Tahoma. I think that with ReactOS Tahoma Bold is rendered as a more wide version of the non-bold Tahoma font while on Windows its just modified.

Just a curiosity

Because they are different fonts.
-uses Ubuntu+GNOME 3 GNU/Linux
-likes Free (as in freedom) and Open Source Detergents
-favors open source of Windows 10 under GPL2

Font problems are being worked on, so you should see improvements with the Latest Builds, if you care to download one every few days.
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - with some complementary scripts.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.
