I blogged about fonts quite a while back here.
I especially like his italics as bold trick that enables you to have Italics comments in Visual Studio even though VS only has an option for bold, even in VS2008.
|Envy Code R||Pretty good, but a bit compressed, note the small M. To me, the verticals are so close together, they blur a bit. It’s also a tad taller than Consolas.|
Even if you don’t care for the font, his VS color schemes, particularly Humane, are definitely worth a try.
Consolas with his bold-italics trick would be a very nice VS2008 font indeed. Hmmm.
