I just recently started using Acme. Years ago I was a heavy user
of sam and wily, but when I moved from Linux to a Mac OS X machine
I found the X11 based programs were a bit too fiddly on the mac.
Plan9Port changes all that of course, and for years now I've been
wanting to try moving over to acme. So far I'm really liking it,
but I don't like the default fonts and am trying others.
I'm currently looking at the available variable width fonts under
the Mac, and I'm wondering if you folks have variable width fonts
you particularly like using when programming?
I've been trying out LaoSangamMN and I may switch to Skia-Regular
next. As weird as it might sound, right now I am also finding
myself partial to ComicSansMS. :-)
Ideally the font would have glyphs that are easy to read for the
symbols used in a typical C or Go program when using a smaller font
(the long label problem I wrote about earlier is manageable with a
smaller font). It's a bonus if the font has good unicode coverage!
