I'd been wondering about this phenomena for a while now, but couldn't find any information about it online.
Why, in the Boot Camp start-up screen, is the Mac's partition name all anti-aliased and pretty, while the Windows partition name looks all pixelly and ugly?
Anti-aliased and pretty
Looks like death
There doesn't seem to be any explanation for this. The original explanation I had was that the drive name was standard, and therefore, it probably wasn't text at all, but an image or something instead. That was quickly proven false when I had installed a new hard drive and gave it a non-standard name. Certainly the capability is available, so what gives?
Maybe I'm just picky because I'm a designer, but whether this is Apple's way of making Windows look more unattractive, or if it's just a programming problem, I say bad form. I wouldn't even care if they were both aliased, just as long as they were consistent.
