The Impure!Ascii group introduced me to those fonts.

They are used for ascii arts in what they refer to as "the scene".

I am "using them" for something so I can mention it here!

I have recently started using gohu everywhere. Holy shit did do i enjoy the readability of this font. No more try-and-error for 1lI0O...

I'm using Source Code Pro (11px) for the exact same reason.

I use Latin Modern Mono as my primary monospace font, which looks really nice (IMO) when programming. I'd like to try a font with ligatures, though, if anybody has any recommendations.

I'm using tamsyn. I tried gohu but I keep going back to tamsyn.

I could do with a shot of rum right now.

A couple of years later, I'm still on uushi. I keep coming back to it.

Edit: Golly gee, it appears I switched to lemon on my laptop and forgot that I'd switched to lemon. That's lemon in my scrot. Different font, same author.

Nice! I'm going to try that for a while.

Normally I use a bitmap font, like lemon, terminus, or gohu, but I found Luxi Mono for my term and Luxi Serif for acme that I really like a lot.

For terminal, I'm using inconsolata. For UI, I am partial to Intel's Clear font family.

I really like gohufont but 11 is too small and 14 is too big, I wish the size was similar to Terminus.
By the way, are there any new kids on the bitmap rice block ?

I'll probably sound boring, but i find Monospace 9 the best font for my eyes.

Monospace is not a font per se. It's an alias.
Run this:
Code:
fc-match 'monospace'

I use hasklig for my terminal. Loveska is also something that I like but somehow when the font becomes very small it doesn't look that great

i just came back to Fixedsys after years with Terminus. feels like ~ . But I can't seem to set it as the font in urxvt, but with this line
Code:
printf '\e]710;%s\007' "xft:Fixedsys Excelsior 3.01\-L2 Mono:style=Regular"
in my bash rc, it works fine..

Code:
(defcustom rocx-default-font
  "Go Mono-10:hintstyle=3:autohint=true:lcdfilter=3"
  "Default frame font.")

It's almost blatantly Luxi Mono (on the right, both B&H faces) save for a few distinguishments on the 'I1legalO0' front. Serifs are underrated.

Still using Fixedsys as a terminal and UI font, but prefer a large Hack when editing.

Also the reason i couldn't set Fixedsys directly in xresources, was that you need to "double escape" dashes in font names:
Code:
xft:Fixedsys Excelsior 3.01\\-L2 Mono:style=Regular

Code:
-misc-fixed-medium-*-normal-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
and it works well.

Great Unicode coverage, for not being a TTF font.

I have been pairing charter[1] as a variable width font with Go Mono for a month or so now.
