A brand new program which turns your Windows machine into a Mac. With the power of freetype, it can render your Windows fonts smoothly and much more conveniently to read. This program is re-developed from GDI++, a Japanese project which is no longer being updated. MacType is now more powerful than GDI++. It supports Chrome 18+, GTK and even Safari.

To install MacType, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install mactype

To upgrade MacType, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade mactype

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
