Consolas on Windows 7 indeed is much improved.

Liberation Mono should get a mention too. It is hinted for the small font sizes, great for those who prefer old-style crisp hinted glyphs. I use it on mintty for Cygwin.

How do you get mintty to see Liberation Mono? I downloaded the family from redhat, installed it on my w7-x64 machine, made sure it was set to 'show,' and started a fresh mintty, but it still can't find the font. Even unchecking 'hide fonts based on language settings' in 'font settings' didn't help (made a lot of other fonts appear, tho).

(For now I'm using Lucida Console)
