I don't know exactly what 'infinality fonts' term means, so this can
be offtopic.

Infinality is a set of patches for the freetype rendering engine that
enables/improves TTF and ClearType rendering with sub-pixel hinting;
This set of patches (and configuration files) beat the fuck out of
freetype-freeworld and you get font rendering which doesn't embarass
Linux when compared to Windows and OSX.

The issue is that most fonts traditionally shipped by openSUSE/SUSE
(and other distros) don't really support to the full extent the
capabilities of this patch set. If you use Microsoft Fonts or for
example the Ubuntu Font Family, you will get amazing results...

That's what it does :)
