I’ve just discovered out the Nu Sans monospace font on a Reddit discussion regarding the Mensch font – which is also a good font. However, Nu Sans caught my attention when I tested it on Visual Studio 2008 because it has that Lucida Console feel: a large font within small line height. And this is good for programming, because you can fit more lines on the screen. The TTF of the link above is a demo without accents, but it’s pretty usable.
So I just found a new font for my programming font collection.
