No option to disable ClearType in IE9.0

I just found that there is no option to disable ClearType in IE9.0 RC. That is, all the text you see will be blurry like the anti-aliasing used in Acrobat PDF reader. For all the performance improvement in IE9, this one little thing could kill it for me personally.

Firefox used this antialiasing technique many years ago and they went away from that. Can't believe Microsoft is doing that in 2011!.
