in thread What font do you use for programming?

6x13 (I guess), or rather, -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso10646-1, here too.

It's not the shape. I actually like a lot of the other choices better in most ways. But it's practically the only freakin' choice that's semicondensed. Regular width fonts are so wide, I feel like I'm getting whiplash every time I try to read them, never mind seriously cutting down on how much I can put on screen at once. Gimme some of the other choices in semicondensed, fixed can probably fall aside pretty quick...
