Screenshots, that's why. The system you used was using subpixel antialiasing, no doubt. I assume we'll be seeing SVG graphs eventually, so we'll see them rendered with our own display/font settings?

Well, subpixel hinting was also the first thing i noticed in new
graphs (which, btw, look just beautiful), and I think it's way better
than that blurry font rendering on previous graphs. However, there are
camps... as always. Apparently, it boils down to the way you are
Mac people love it the way previous graph were, which I think is
hideous. Some Windows folks love it with jagged lines, no antialiasing,
"put-a-black-pixel-or-go-away" kind of rendering. It's more tolerable,
but not quite as nice as subpixel hinting.
And then, there are many kind of subpixel hinting. Original Cleartype
is crystal clear, but deforming font shapes. New Cleartype (WPF -
Vista, 7) is blurrier, but significantly better. Ubuntu sub is too
aggresive (you can sometimes see that on the letter 'k'), in a way
much like original Cleartype but lousier.
Finaly, there are my settings Slight hinting, David Turners patch
(only vertical hinting, like this), non-patented freetype hinter.
"These are the best settings" - Clavko said. Your mileage can vary
The problem with these super-expensive processors is that their value isn't that great. Sure it has lots of performance, but you can buy CPUs 3-3,5x cheaper that aren't 3-3,5x slower. Too bad there's no AMD 6-core in there as well.
That's right, I was looking for 6-core AMD CPUs >3GHz in this benchmark, too.

Wrong word order
You ought to have written:
"... to test out this fast but incredibly expensive processor under Linux."
