If your favorite isn't listed here, feel free to add it.

to:

In particular, many feel that those similar-looking characters are still too close together in appearance (thus MPW, ProFont, and Anonymous are extremely close to the original 9 point monaco, with the main changes being disambiguation of these characters). If your favorite isn't listed here, feel free to add it.

Of course, the Mac ships with the excellent **Monaco** font, created by Susan Kare in the 80s, and later updated to disambiguate `0` and `O`, `l` and `I` and `1`, etc. But many users prefer other monospaced fonts. If your favorite isn't listed here, feel free to add it.

  1. Free (as in speech)
  * **[Bitstream Vera Sans Mono][vera]** and the other Bitstream Vera 
    fonts are a set of fonts released under a free license by Bitstream. 
    They are popular in Linux distributions.  The [Dejavu][] fonts are
    based on the Bitstream Vera Fonts release 1.10, but provide a wider
    range of characters (including things like ⌘ and ⌥) while
    maintaining the original look and feel.  They are developed openly.

  * [Luxi Mono][luxi] – `Fonts.zip` in this directory includes a number 
    of useful fonts, including Luxi Mono, a very clean serif monospace 
    font designed by Bigelow and Holmes (of Lucida fame) - very popular 
    in the Linux world. 

  * [Inconsolata][] is a font designed for code in print format. It 
    looks terrible when used on screen in Windows, but luckily looks 
    amazing, even at small sizes on Mac OS X (and it prints just 
    gorgeously).

  1. Free (as in beer) / donationware
  * [Profont][] is a Monaco derivative which was originally designed to
    be more usable by programmers with inclusion of a slashed `0` and
    other letter disambiguations.  Though Monaco picked up some of these
    features, many still prefer Profont.  To avoid [problems][pro-prob]
    with ligatures, try the [Profont X][] variant, which has the
    ligatures explicitly [removed][pro-nolig].
