Windows GUI has unreadable text

The whole Windows client has some font anti aliasing / dithering applied and makes all and every text low contrast, blurry and hard to read.

Also this indicated that the client does not obey Windows global font-smoothing setting which has been set to disable here.

I could not find a setting to change this. Is there a option, ini parameter, registry setting to change this ? 


I did find a fellow Mac user with same issue and suggested issue1286 is completely different thing that was asked for. (font aliasing vs font size)


Too bad that I just installed the client for thew first time and this is a immediate show stopper for me =(
