Maybe https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-35402

Sure. The above bug is in my TODO list as a matter of fact,

3. Things to try:
a) Text#setFontSmoothingType(LCD) ?
b)  -Dprism.text=t2k (in the command line)
c)  if the font size is bigger than 80 JavaFX renders text using paths, try font size < 80 (so that glyph images are used)
d) make sure the text node does not lay in a transparent cached parent, or any other type node that is internally rendered using intermediate transparent texture. See https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-31100 for details.
e) if the node is cached (with or without background set), make sure the node is not scaled up.

Question to you, does it look good on Windows 7 and bad on Windows 8 ?

Please, use the jira to report results.

Thank you
