Cleartype and Remote Desktop Connection

One thing that has been bothering me a lot is the fact that Cleartype does not work on Windows XP (SP3) with my Mac OS X RDC client (v2.1). Well: this can be solved by a registry hack:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations] 
"AllowFontAntiAlias"=dword:00000001
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp]
"AllowFontAntiAlias"=dword:00000001

Just reboot your Windows Machine, and make sure it is enabled in your RDC client preferences. Tip 'o the hat to s4e8
