This is exactly the problem with Linux unfortunately. Look at the
zebra patterns on this page:

They are not bard-on-light or light-on-dark. They are zebras which
need to be rendered evenly without moire or color fringes. Windows
lately does very good job; Linux desktops suck though. Then people
bend over backwards trying to compensate for that. Instead, gamma
correction should be one of the text settings.
