Hi,
in another meanwhile closed thread I've read:

For the non-retina users, to re-enable subpixel rendering for fonts use this in terminal
“defaults write -g CGFontRenderingFontSmoothingDisabled -bool NO” , your welcome.
How to verify if it was successful?
In which relation does it stand to this command:

if you are using Microsoft Visual Studio Code editor, you can spot the fonts differences

You can see the difference if you have a 1080p display or a lower resolution.

Did you notice the difference someone else? I won't to test it, but I can't see any changes after logout or reboot.

I have the feeling that anything looks better now. Before switching it on the dark mode looked very broken here. for example the Fav bar or Safari or the file properties in finer (cmd j) look broken.

Now it looks ok. when i find some time I might test in an scientific test and create sceenshots of both states. but no time yet
