    Default Great monospace font...

    I never really liked the monospace font that is provided (ok, maybe i am alone on this) but i found an alternative recently i like to share.

    Its called Envy Code R and is free, but can not (thats a bummer) be redistributed. Still you can use it for free and it looks really nice.

    I provide this link Envy Code R preview #7 (scalable coding font)

    Do you use anything other than the default font? I always looking for nice good readable fonts.

    I've always liked droid sans mono myself... (classic imo)

    but I also recently stumbled upon square shooter mono and have been using it almost exclusively since...

    Thank you for the pointer. Personally, I like the font a bit wider and I am using DejaVu Sans Mono which has been available for a long time. It lets you distinguish between l and I and 1 on the terminal.

    (That was: small letter L, capital I and number "One")

    Just to let you know. This envy does a nice job in distinguish between all the characters. A zero looks like a zero 0. And l as an l..etc.
    I always struggled with the other font.

    Have to look up where to find more fonts.
