Which font are you using? I can't quite place it.

Not him, but maybe its Ubuntu?

(Her actually.) It's M+ 1mn Light (M+ fonts, Type 1, monospace). I think the whole family is attractive & readable and for programming on OS X I wanted something with a lighter font weight (it's got 5) to compensate for OS X's overly heavy rendering of light text on dark backgrounds. For Linux/BSD terms I tend to use either the medium weight or use monofur.

Awesome, thank you! Spent 30 minutes this morning running through Identifont with no luck :)

Think I prefer prefer the look of the regular weight on high DPI though:

You're welcome. I never think of it as an obscure font family so I didn't list it, but I guess it's not so well known. I can see what you mean about high-dpi though Regular is still a bit too heavy for my tastes, I've just spent too many years on linux terminals that render light-on-dark much lighter. I run at 12-14pt in iTerm2 on a low res 13" mbp, so that may make a big difference as well.

That looks a lot like Pragmata Pro.

Not Ubuntu. The middle vertical bar in the m would be shorter.

I'm wondering what font this is, too.
