Most monospace fonts are pretty much the same. Droid, Ubuntu, Inconsolata, Monospace etc haven’t significant differences between them, while some extreme monospace fonts are hard to read. Of course is a matter of personal preferences, but I would like to had something ..different.
Today I discovered Nova Mono, and these fonts are totally awesome! They aren’t typical monospace, but they are equally clear. I dare to say, they are more clear than the previously mentioned!
Don’t miss to try them out!
The fonts were made from Wojciech Kalinowski around 15 years ago, but only recently (2010) were transferred to computers, under SIL Open Font License, 1.1
