And bigger is better. Noticed by an accident that big fonts are cool. The XP computer @ job couldn't anti-alias small fonts so I had to try with size 16 or bigger. Actually I like the way you can see only small fraction of the source code compared to small fonts. It's somehow better.
This setting has Monofur 18pt font. Couple of other monospace fonts also look great in bigger size. I think it's easier to read code when there is less information on screen at a time.
Even with 18pt font the editor character size is 97x26 which is amazingly close to old school 80x25 characters of a console or EGA screen.
