I was looking for ways to make fonts look better in connecting to Windows from Linux via rdesktop.

The following page shows a great resolution/workaround.

$ rdesktop -u mywinusername -k en-us -g 93% -x 80 -r sound myhostipaddress

Two other options than -x 80 are shown in the page above, -x 81 and -x 8f.  (Refer to the page above.)
