What font you use for coding? Anti-aliased or not?

I'm trying Monaco 12 not anti-aliased at the moment, it looks good i think...

As far as color, white on dark blue Smile

Depends on the app. I was a Monaco 10 lover, but it's starting to get small. Size 11 I think is ok, but I can't get it aliased, so I have 11 anti-aliased in TM and AE, but in Xcode it's still 10 aliased.

Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, 9, antialiased.
Monaco 9 aliased for the terminal though.

Monaco 10 black on white antialiased -- I'm pretty sure it's just the Xcode default.

Marker Felt! Ok, not really... I use monaco 10 because it's the xcode default and I'm too lazy to bother with trying to change it.

Monaco 10, aliased, black on white, but I picked it on purpose (wasn't the default).

www.codinghorror.com had an article recently on font use. I'm currently trying out Consolas to see if it has any merit.

It's awesome Wink

I can't stand coding on a white background, it hurts my eyes. So I code on a black background with light colored fonts. (white/yellow/green mostly)

When in doubt ... read the Read Me
