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.
Works for me, on w7-x64. Make sure the font shows up in the Fonts
control panel and that it isn't hidden, i.e. not appearing greyed out.
There's a 'Show' button along the top of the panel in case it is.
I tried to say before that I have done that (I saw the closed bug about this and made sure to follow the instructions there). Unchecking that setting about language-specific hiding made a whole bunch of other (presumably Asian) fonts show up in mintty, but still no Liberation Mono.

The font is officially installed, officially showing, and usable by just about everything except mintty. Most apps (like Word) picked it up immediately.

Very odd...
