You're right, and it is horrendously ugly.
Depends on your choice of fonts.
I never use GNU Emacs.
It does use antialiased fonts nowadays in the development version. But
frankly, I don't think them a substantial improvement over 10x20 (quite
a nice bitmap font). A good hand-designed pixel font makes the best use
of screen contrast. I agree that digitized outlines suck for that
purpose and antialiasing helps.
