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).

Vera Sans Mono (or DejaVu LGC Sans)
Droid Sans Mono
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.
(For now I'm using Lucida Console)
