Finally: some great font for programmers. First there’s ProFont, which is kind of small but specially suited for coding. It’s a .FON font, meaning it’s a real bitmap font that only works at a given size (Windows 3- days!), but it’s ported to Mac, Linux, and Windows TTF as well. I know lots of programmers that prefer insanely small font sizes, so this might be cool for some people.
Then there’s these other four variations of a font called Proggy. Proggy Clean and Proggy Small seem specially attractive to me, maybe because of the way the letter “O” is done – a diagonally-shaped circle (I think it makes me remember the MSX or the Commodore 64 or something – whatever the reason, I consider it to be über 1337). I’ve been using Andale Mono at size 9 with good results, but I think I’ll give Proggy a try. It’s also a .FON font, and PC only.
Of course, I’ve also been doing a little research for a font myself, but since I usually take so much time to complete my personal off-work projects, better find a good font in the meantime.
