Objectively best fontconfig for GNU/Linux Freetype, with Adobe CFF rasteriser for OTF fonts, and autohinted slight hinting otherwise:

Only hipster faggots care too much about fonts.

This is false, bad font hinting is to bad hhandwriting as handwriting is to legibility.

Monospace or bust

😹👌💯

You fags are shameless

...

Did they really DMCA it?

Pretty much the default settings. I've never had any problems with legibility.

here it is again if you want it :^)

...

I already got it, but thanks for providing it for others. There are an assload of different variations of fonts in there, how do I determine which to use for something? e.g. the 20 different types of each Trinité

no clue, im not a graphics designer.

If you are running Arch and want something like Infinality but without the need for patching or the want for customization, you should try this: aur.archlinux.org/packages/fontconfig-enhanced-defaults

It enables patented rendering techniques, chooses better defaults than Fontconfig in general, and supports enabling them with GNOME and Java.

It does not overwrite or override preexisting configurations, so you need to remove anything custom in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/fontconfig/fonts.conf.
Nor does it change the font order, just the rendering.
