  • Monaco regular 20pt antialiased.

    Gives you 80x26 lines on an iBook terminal, and no headaches.

    And green on black naturally, just the way God intended it!
    • Monaco *20pt*? Isn't that a little... large?

      Personally, I've always used Monaco 9, preferably the pre Mac OS 8.6 version (which has smaller punctuation, although the I and l and 0 and O are indistinguishable, which used to be the sort of annoyance that got Profont a following. Still, I like it, enough to stick it in ~/Library/Fonts/).

      That gives me 4 80x24 Terminals (or MacSSH windows, when I'm back in Mac OS 9) on my 1024x768 display, which seems about right. Black on white, of course, the way... someone at Apple, I suppose, intended it.

      It's also my default for monospaced fonts in web browsers (although annoyingly Safari insists in anti-aliasing it even at 9pt).
      • Isn't that a little... large?

        Not when you code 10 or 12 straight hours for days on end. Making things easy on your eyes is essential.

        Sure, at such a large point size I only get one terminal, which fills my entire screen. But that's what the Cmd-` key is for. I vastly prefer to flip through a temporal series of windows than to raster through a spatial array of them.

        Interestingly, I'll be talking about that very topic (amongst others) in a tutorial I'm giving at OSCON this year, focusing on n
