best idea ever

When a Windows user takes a screenshot, Windows should send a message to all visible applications saying "WM_REPAINT_YO" but with the ClearType(TM) crap turned off.... then screenshot and immediately tell them all to repaint again with their ClearType (sub-pixel anti-aliasing) back on.

That way when I look at pages on the web with screenshots of people's windows desktops I don't get a headache trying to read the fuzzy red/green/blue text because their LCD monitor had a different pixel layout.

Grrrr.

I just get a headache trying to read this text.
