Before I start my thread let me tell you that I have installed both Linux Mint 12 and Windows 8 consumer Preview on the same machine sharing different hard drives. I installed Linux Mint 12 on one of the drive whereas I installed windows 8 consumer preview on the other drive. My computer is Compaq 4400.
Now I do not understand why I am getting such a big difference in the font of both the OS even after installing them in the same machine which is sharing almost everything similar (only the hard drive is different). Is there anyone who has any idea about the difference in the font in both the OS?
