Anti-aliasing means "make the edges fuzzy". That's how it removes jagged
edges (in signal theory, these are called aliases, hence the term
anti-alias for removing or smoothing them). The control panel for your
desktop environment(s) will have a section for controlling in a bit more
detail exactly how the fuzzy edges are made. One of the hints will be
best for LCD screens, I think it's called sub-pixel rendering.
