How did we miss this item? Respected usability expert Jakob Nielsen provided an interesting interpretation

July 8, 1999
A new Microsoft
press release about ClearType seems to position it for the narrow market of electronic books. It would be a disgrace if Microsoft were
to sit on an invention that can improve reading productivity by 25% for all users. Maybe we need to start a campaign to get ClearType into Windows 2000 since it will cost the world economy about half a trillion
dollars if they delay ClearType until Windows 2002.
