    What is your font of choice for programming? I have had a few favourites (Consolas, Source Code Pro) but for quite a while now I have been using the beautiful Inconsolata. What is your favourite?

    I use Wingdings.

    In all seriousness, I use Consolas simply because it's the default font of GMS2 and I'm used to it, but I went through a phase of using Lucida Console in my TeX editor when producing academic documents. Of course the documents themselves were (and still are) faced in Computer Modern.

    Courier New isn't a bad programming font. I don't have a problem with Consolas either, just wanted something else to look at I guess.

    Anything that has good legibility at small sizes and is monospaced will work.

    I would really stress that using monospaced fonts (typefaces where ever letter is the same width) is imho essential. I find it really helps with formatting and spotting mistakes etc

    Personally prefer Lucida Console myself at a small size(10pt). I've just used it a lot, never really played around with others but maybe this is a good resource thread to give others a try. I do like neat-structured fonts so:

    100% agree with this. If there's other monospaced fonts out there I'd love to try them.

    I use Courier New and my programs have like, zero bugs.
    The colors I use are here: http://www.filedropper.com/colorsofcode

    Coding is hard bargain. You dont want to use fonts that look too soft. It is a solid endeavour of hard metal and steel.
