What font does Windows use on its desktop?

You know, that thin, crappy-looking font that they use for all the file names, folder names, etc.?

I'm designing a Mac-vs.-PC bumper sticker, and I want to use that font for the Windows half of my message. :D

Edit: And...is there a way to remove anti-aliasing in Photoshop text, so I can make it look as clunky as possible?

Thank you all.

The aliasing didn't look quite as bad as I wanted, to I just rendered the layer and applied a mosaic filter.

Once again, thanks! :)

I thought it was Verdana, with no anti-aliasing. I'm probably wrong though, since you all seem to agree on Tahoma.

Its most definitely Tahoma. Has been since Office 97 and Windows 2000.

I know because I was using it at the time. Bad, bad memories. Good luck with your project!
