Consolas as my new IDE font for Visual Studio 2005

I am loving Microsoft’s Vista new font Consolas as my new IDE font for Visual Studio 2005. I used to switch between Courier New 9 pt and Anonymous but Consolas rocks!
Screen Shots:

Also exciting about new Vista fonts is Calibri, which should give web developers another choice besides Verdana for a rounded corner font.

I happend to still have the zip file of Vista Fonts. I know that Microsoft is not giddy about people getting these fonts but I have to ask why? Do they not get that this only drums up interest in Vista (I believe the term is Viral Marketing) Anyways, get your download until they tell me to stop.


Are there any handheld computers that run Microsoft Vista? Fonts used in Vista may not print properly on Zebra printers, so check compatibility first. You may have issues using external devices like printers and barcode readers on Vista until all the kinks get worked out.

    Son 6: Calibri, Cambria, Candara, Consolas, Constantia y Corbel. Todas están bonitas, especialmente Cambria y Consolas…(visto en http://sinexion.com)…

    Has anyone been able to make Consolas work as the text editor font in VS2003? I’ve installed the font, but ti doesn’t show up in the list of available choices. Consola Italic does, but not Consola proper.

  6. Tipografia Consolas…

    Como saben, me la paso todo el dia (o casi) mirando un entorno de desarrollo… por lo tanto, necesito una buena tipografia monoespaciada… venia usando la Dina, y no estaba mal:

    Es linda y clara, pero es FON, no es TTF. Y si la querías agrandar un …

    Thank you. This just saves people time. It would be pretty lame if Microsoft had a problem with this.

    I wanted to add that the zeroes are slashed and the numeral “one” is pointed, very easily distingished from lower case L! It is a great font, I agree!

  10. Sergio says:

    The download works, :-) , there is only one font family that is messed
    up. The “CONSTANTIA”. Only the regular font shows the numbers.
    Bold, Bold Italic, and Italic only show “@@@@@@@@@@”
    Can someone fix this – by uploading these three Vista fonts again

  11. [...] Una alternativa a Consolas es Bitstream Vera Sans Mono de Gnome. Ambas son bastante parecidas, pero la fuente de Gnome tiene la ventaja de tener un Copyright mucho menos restrictivo(se pueden copiar, redistribuir; e incluso modificar siempre y cuando al resultado se le de otro nombre) y no tener que incurrir en la ilegalidad para descargarla (descargar Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, web con un enlace para la descarga de las nuevas fuentes de Windows Vista).
