Question 1: Based on these statistics, can we deduct roughly how many users (percentage) will see custom fonts (@font-face) with grayscale rendering or no smoothing in Windows?
Question 2: If a user has grayscale rendering or no smoothing selected, would they even notice it if they were delivered a poorly hinted font? The core web fonts are hinted extensively, but a lot of the fonts available in MS Office are not. Do you think the user would be so used to poor rendering that they wouldn’t care?
