The display font, or the rendering maybe (?), is very different on Linux than on Windows. It looks sharper but much smaller. Is there any way to fix this?

I had the same problem once. I found out that I for some reason did need a common font package, which I didn't have. I found the package, installed it, and everything was nice again.

I can't remember the name of the package, and it may not be your problem. But check which font your system is using, and find out if you actually have that font installed.

How do you even see the system font?

You can increase the DPI. DPI will increase the size of all your fonts.

Yup, you can change it. At least in KDE/Gnome/Most Desktops.
