Good font for use in Visual Studio

I always used Courier New in Visual Studio. Now it seems Microsoft have come out with a new font called Consolas which was specifically designed for use in programming environments. I have been using it for the last few months and definitely prefer it to Courier New. It actually comes pre-installed on Vista, but if you don't have it, you can get it here.

A friend just reminded me of this post, and I realised I forgot to include an important point. If you do choose to use this font on Windows XP, you'll need to enable ClearType, otherwise it'll look terrible.

You can do that (in IE) here
