What are the benefits of hinting a font if you're not going to do it manually? I have found that even my more rigid, geometric typefaces end up rendering clunky or wobbly when autohinting comes into play. Decorative and detailed fonts... fugetaboudit!
I am of the opinion that an unhinted font generally looks better than an autohinted font on screen, leaving antialiasing to a quality engine (ie: Adobe or MacOS... especially Photoshop with the selection of antialiasing styles).
How do you all approach this conundrum? Does it bother you? What do you prefer... autohinting or no hints at all?
