I recently upgraded my personal workstation from Ubuntu 12.04 to Fedora Core 19. I'm very happy with the change, I prefer the standard Gnome 3 to Canonical's Unity desktop. Probably something to do with my workstation not being a tablet. However, one of the annoyances with Fedora Core has always been its font rendering. It was never as nice a default Ubuntu install. However after a couple of days of digging I've managed to figure out the magic incantation required to get all of my fonts looking good, including in Google Chrome.
