Microsoft was kind enough to release the Consoles font from Vista for VS 2005. I hadn’t noticed the first time around how nice this font is but it does actually make a difference when reading coding although it did take some getting used to before I was convinced. Give it day before you decide.
I highly recommend downloading and installing it.
Both Scott Hanselman with Consolas Font Family now available for download and guidmaster with Consolas Font Pack tuned me in to this one. Thanks.
