It comes with some interesting variants, most notably Poly which is not fully monospaced, adjusting the widths of characters like i to be a little narrower, and W to be a little wider. I like to use that for code display.
It has serifs and true italics. Might be an interesting free alternative.
Even though it's a reasonable price for a commercial font, I can't really justify spending $99 on a coding font just for writing code. I might get tired of it after a few weeks. But if I were to write a programming book, I just might consider it for print.
