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.
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).
