Keynote thought

Microsoft needs to hire me as a consultant to tech executives to make their font sizes bigger in VS.NET. How anyone thinks Courier New 12 is an appropriate font for a 4,000 person keynote is beyond me.

I know I've been a Lucida Console person, but I'm digging a new Longhorn font called Consolas. Its brilliant. Watch for it soon. Its better than Lucida, hinted for LCD and high-res displays and has dec specific features like ProFont. I love it, and I'll be using it in my talk at 10:45am today.

I've heard of this font before and saw some screenshots on the web, it looks awesome! But where did you get it from?

(Out of longhorn).

I'm trying to like Consolas. It's too short and not as clean as Bitstream Vera Sans Mono though. But this is on XP, the screens of these fonts on Longhorn look much better.
