Classic X11 fonts for Windows


February 16 2012

For people, like myself, who are fans of the classic X11 font misc-fixed, there is now a Windows version of this font, and I have made a local mirror of the true-type version of the 6x13 font, which seems to be available under a GPL license.

This font is very useful for having two 80x41 terminal windows side-by-side on a tiny 1024x600 Netbook screen. The font is a true-type font which looks good at only one size: 9 point.

For anything larger, I recommend using Cousine (also sometimes known as "Liberation mono"), which is a beautiful and fully readable fully delta hinted monospace font released under an open-source license (the Open Font License); I also have a local mirror of this font.
