What font do you use in your terminal window? I'm a Lucida Sans Typewriter fan myself. I've just started a radical experiment, using a non-monospaced font. When I need to edit code, I open a window with a monospaced font, but for most things, it seems to be a little more readable to have a proportionally-spaced font on the screen. The only problem is that the terminal window is about twice as wide as it needs to be, apparently because it's allocating space of a row of 'm's.
