Just to be picky, that's not necessarily the case. LCDs can show fonts
quite nicely without it. But if you're using a system that draws fonts
in an ugly manner without it (e.g. FC3, FC4, haven't tested FC5), yes
it's the case. It seems to be the design of the fonts used by Fedora,
as well as the font rendering system. Other things can draw very neat
looking fonts that only occupy one pixel width.
Yes, some systems display fonts better than others without sub-pixel
However, I'm yet to see a system, Linux or not, in which text will not look
nicer on LCDs after setting up sub-pixel rendering. When it's well
configured, the difference is huge, specially on small fonts.
