Why do fonts look better in linux?

Why do fonts look better in linux?:

Has anyone had this observation? It seems like pretty much all fonts look “better” (?) in GNU/Linux distros compared to Mac and especially Windows. I don’t know what “better” is, it just looks more aethetically appealing to my eye. Why is that? As a programmer, I wonder what algorithm affects this and why don’t Microsoft use it…

If it’s relavant: I use archlinux.
