Which Fonts Do You Use in Your Editor?

In GVim I’ve got Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, 9 point, with antialiasing. I’ve found it to be quite good and readable.

You can get the .ttf files from here: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/ttf-bitstream-vera/1.10/

Formerly used Andale Mono.

Now use Dina.

For my setup, bitmapped fonts just look cleaner.

I find Fixedsys Excelsior the best font for typing non-Latin scripts (I write mostly in Hebrew). It is a bitmap font, so there is no need for anti-aliasing, which I find visually unpleasing.

And it looks great in my zenburn-ed Mutt and Newsbeuter… :-)

Thanks a lot Kevin and Júda. Btw sorry it took some time to approve the comments…

The Fixedsys Excelsior looks like DOS-times – in good and in bad :)

Dina looks quite crisp, I’ll give it a shot. Found a TTF version of Dina here.

I use Anonymous Pro 11 pt.
