I would like to change the default font, but I'm not sure to what?

Does anyone have a good idea about a particular font which is easy
to read and does not strain the eyes?

I like Andale Mono, which is a free Microsoft font.  You can't download it
from Microsoft any more, but I think you can get it from SourceForge or I
could e-mail you a copy.  It's freely distributable as long as it's supplied
as the original self-installing EXE accompanied by a copy of the EULA.
Another alternative is "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono", which is available from

Like the other fonts people are recommending, it is a Sans Serif font (easier to read, especially at small sizes), and like Andale Mono it has very distinct differences between 0 and O and l, I  and 1, (especially useful for O and 0, which are very close on the keyboard and easy to accidentally hit).
