Windows 7 (DirectWrite) text-rendering comparison

Windows 7 (DirectWrite) text-rendering comparison

Windows 7 apparently has advances in its text rendering through the new DirectWrite API. It sounds to me like DirectWrite is employing a more OS X Quartz style of text rendering; MS call it Natural ClearType. However, because taking advantage of the new rendering requires use of the new API, I've not been able to do any comparisons.
