Inconsolata OpenType programming font
My quest for something to replace Envy Code B on my ClearType-enabled systems continues.
It must be obviously scalable, mono-spaced (yes I know you *can* program with variable-width but I prefer fixed-width), have distinctive characters to help avoid confusion between 1il, o0OQ, $Ss8 at reasonably small font sizes – you know the drill.
True, the font isn’t *perfect* but it is very fine indeed. The best news is that it is to be liberally licence which means I should be able to make the tweaks I want (there are some Bezier glitches, missing symbols and that zero needs a slash through it) and release a derivative version. I’m also not keen on the micro-serifs but we’ll see.
I’m just getting clarification on the situation from the author as to whether the licence applies now or at final release.
