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.

anti-aliased.

* **[MPW][]** is Apple's font, used in the Macintosh Programmer's
Workshop, and based on 9 point Monaco. It has clear distinctions
between commonly-confused characters such as `0`, `O`, `I`, `l`,
`1`, `|`, etc., though not as clear as ProFont. It was never
designed to be used with antialiasing, or at sizes other than 9
point, but at least one user likes it at 10 pt, with antialiasing.

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.

## 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.

* [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).

## 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].

Macintosh bitmap font developed in the mid-90s by Susan Lesch and
David Lamkins. It was designed as a more legible alternative to
