Visual Studio 2010 beta – Editor tooltip readability

If you find text readability in Visual Studio 2010 beta unbearable and can wait till Beta 2 for new text rendering stack that promises perfect text sharpness (better than GDI), kinda workaround is to increase font sizes…

Fonts can be changed in Tools > Options, Environment > Fonts and Colors.
For code editors change “Text Editor” and for code tooltips “Editor Tooltip” settings.

This doesn't help... the colors for Editor Tooltip are disabled. I was going to make them transparent so that the tooltips would go away entirely. Is there an option anywhere to turn them off? The flickering is giving me a headache.

Apparently there is not any way to do this. *sigh*
