I shifted my dev environment (Textpad :) ) over to using Microsoftís new motospace font for Vista today - Consolas. First impressions: really seriously good. Previously Iíd been using Lucida Console but Consolas is better in a whole load of ways: being designed for ClearType helps but what really gets me is the commas and semi-colons. Ampersands and zeros are also highly differentiated.

It comes with Vista and Office 2007, but the Powerpoint Viewer is free and has it if you donít have the previous. Definitely worth a try.

I agree, it's pretty good too. I've been using it for a year now however, I managed to get hold of it via a download somewhere. Everything seems so much easier to read, and everything is much less jagged.
