Looking at the image on a different computer, it looks ok. But on the original equipment it is quite bad. I'll get the machine out tomorrow and take a photo instead.

Here is a screenshot showing one of the problem areas. Sorry the photo is not so good, it is hard to get a good closeup, in part because of the brightness (which is another bug because it cannot be adjusted). I hope it illustrates the problem. Bascally the text in some cases is virtually unreadable.

I *think* I can see it. It appears it's repeatable since you just did it again. This wasn't a problem with previous versions? I think `lspci -vvnn` is required here. Also might be useful to see if there's any warnings or errors in /var/log/dmesg, syslog, or Xorg.0.log. I don't see issues with other testers nor am I having the issue. Clearly it's related to some specific hardware. Which is to say, it's probably graphics drivers, but we'll see.

Strange but it is not an issue with the Live session, just the installed results:
