The Microsoft Consolas Font Family is a set of highly legible fonts designed for ClearType.
I’ve [blogged previously]/2006/03/cleartype-in-internet-explorer-7.html) about how I enabled ClearType because it should improve productivity. I’ve left it on at home with the LCD monitors, but I reverted back to the standard fonts on the CRT monitors at work as it was just too fuzzy to work with.
Unless you’re using ClearType on a suitable monitor, I wouldn’t bother with these fonts. They don’t look that great on my CRTs. I’ll give them a try at home though.

The built-in unzip in Windows XP is nice to have, but for some reason it runs extremely slowly if the zip has more than a few files in it. I’m trying out “TUGZip” as it also integrates with Windows Explorer and looks like it is a bit snappier in the performance stakes. It’s also freeware.
