I guess since I wrote plot primarily as a diagnostic, I value the precision of the thinner lines (e.g. particularly for things line targen/ofps). Of course this preference may well depend on the resolution of your display.

I'm happy to add this mod to my source though.
It still not as smooth and nice as the mac osx version (1) , but I think it's somewhat better.
Yes, the OS X stuff looks pretty nice with it's anti-aliased rendering. The plot library is intended to be pretty minimal and close to the metal though, whereas a full blown GUI could use something more sophisticated using an anti-aliased rendering library on MSWindows and X11. Graeme Gill.
