You got it! All you mention above that you are looking for (incl.the subpixel font hinting), Fedora has it. It is stable with a few bugs here and there.

Would need the Workstation image, right.

Try it in a virtual machine, or as a live system...

Have fun!

Subpixel font hinting is available:

The command xrdb -query lists your (default) settings. Nice settings (as they are used in Ubuntu) are the following ones:

Xft.dpi: 96
Xft.antialias: 1
Xft.hinting: 1
Xft.hintstyle: hintslight
Xft.rgba: rgb
Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault

Here is what you do:

1.) For subpixel rendering you need to install freetype-freeworld (sudo dnf install freetype-freeworld) from rpmfusion.

2.) use gnome-tweak-tool to set the hintstyle to slight and anti-aliasing-mode to rGBA.

3.) Activate lcdfilter: Unfortunately, there is no GSettings key for it. You have to create a hidden .Xresource file with the Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault setting in your home directory. Run echo "Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault" > ~/.Xresources.

4.) Logoff and logon again, and you will see the changes. Use xrdb -query to display your settings.

Have fun!
