What is the default value set in Leopard for the system to turn-off text smoothing in Settings/Appearance?

Is it 4 or 8?

Also, what is the most common font smoothing setting people use? Light, Medium etc?

I use a MacBook Pro after switching and am struggling to accept the blurry text.

It seems Light provides the closest match to Windows rendering.

Any opinions.

Thank you.

I believe it is automatic for font smoothing.
font size is four.
I believe this is default as I never changed my settings...
