One of the really nice features about the 6.0 graphics is that 
anti-aliasing is used to eliminate the jerky artifacts caused by the 
finite screen resolution that could spoil graphical output in earlier 
versions. Compare for example:


with 5.2 and 6.0

If you don't have 5.2 loaded anymore, you can get an idea of the 
difference by explicitly turning the feature off:

Plot[Sqrt[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotStyle -> {Antialiasing -> False}]
