Which font is the most geometrically aligned/formed with the pixels of a screen?

As far as I can find, Arial, just plain old Arial.

I kinda like it though.

Anyone else?

Uh? Courier New is always perfectly aligned.

I don't know, it seems like on certain screens it gets skewed a bit, like some edges become shaved.

turn off cleartype, so fonts are aliased

If it's aliased that isn't a perfect fit.
