Just providing food for thought here.

I just tried to display the font from the here (Windows 2000 sp4,
GDI32.dll is 5.0.2195.6945 dated 22/6/2004, 3:35:14), on a screen at 96 dpi
(usual Windows resolution).

The upper line is size 120, so clearly this is not the correct setup.
I guessed 96 as the matching size for the example provided, so the second
line (blue background) is at this size.

Clearly, the Windows (NT) version is much uglier (aliasing...), but at least
it seems to kern the way the author intended, or perhaps a little bit

I did not investigate why and how it behaves this way. Neither did I switch
my screen to 120 dpi.
