Oh yeah, I used ProFont 9 for years. I almost mentioned it above, but it's been a few years since I last used it.

ProFont looks awesome! I may have to switch... Looks very similar to Monaco, but with a few differences that improve readability.

I switched to ProFont quite recently, and I have to say I'm loving it so far. I moved from Monaco size 10 (or whatever the Xcode default is) to Profont size 9 and the ability to get more code on the screen is quite handy. I tried changing to light text on a dark background at the same time, but I can't get used to that any more so I switched back quite rapidly.

anonymous antialiased, profont aliased.

It's not magic, it's Ruby.

I envy you people who have good enough eyes to use a really small font

Luxi mono. From an X11 distro. I'm sure you can find it via google.

Andale Mono 12 antialiased, but I might give ProFont 9 an honest shot.

I code white-on-black, and use as much syntax coloring as my IDE will let me. On Xcode this is a fair amount, but when I used Visual Studio + Visual Assist it was enough to cause seizures.

I also tried turning one of those rotating monitors vertically for my code screen, but that blew my mind out after 30 minutes and I had to switch back.
