Better Fonts in Fedora than in Ubuntu

By default, text in Fedora 19 looks ok but not great. There are good tips to improve fonts on http://fedorasolved.org/Members/khaytsus/improve-fonts
As root user here is what need to be done:
 
cd /etc/fonts/conf.d
ln -s /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/10-autohint.conf
ln -s /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/11-lcdfilter-default.conf
yum install freetype-freeworld
 
Reboot, then, in gnome-tweak-tool choose hinting = slight, and antialiasing = rgba. I also choose the liberation sans and liberation mono fonts.

I am not sure which one did the trick, but it looks much better (even better than my laptop under Ubuntu, not sure why).
