Monaco, my favorite, comes at #3.

By default that family of fonts almost seems double-spaced to me, otherwise I really like them.
Only on Windows Vista/7/8.
Programmers designing fonts is cute but it's not good idea. Lucas de Groot knew what he was doing.
I love Monaco also, but only unaliased at about 10pt. Otherwise, I use Menlo or DejaVu Sans Mono usually.
I've known about Anonymous Pro, but have not given it much usage yet to decide if I like it more than others.
You're right that the font seems to lack italics, anyone know whether this is just Sublime faking it?
Here is the ticket on Github: https://github.com/adobe/source-code-pro/issues/6
Still, I wonder if the bug is with Sublime or the font (since other fonts don't seem to have this problem).
In addition, many designers are taking advantage of scripting to automate parts of the design process. For example, Mark Simonson, the designer of the Anonymous Pro featured here, wrote a script to help you in generating pangrams: http://www.marksimonson.com/notebook/view/pangrammer-helper-...
This example is only tangentially related to the typeface design process, but if you're interested about the intersection of typeface design and technology, you can look up videos from the Robothon conferences to see what the possibilities are.
Also, some fonts are monospaced in the ASCII set, but not for less common characters such as typographic quoted.
Do you know a font that qualifies here? Because Unicode is super awesome!
And on Windows? Either Anonymous Pro or Consolas. Having nice fonts for coding just feels so good. :)
In that image there are a lot of important glyphs that cannot be seen, for example:
I haven't tried out the font, so I can't give much feedback on it, but it seems nice so far (although the '1' looks a little bit weird. I get why, but it still feels off to me)
Personally, I like the font. And its license.
the one i find confusing is 'developer' its vague and pretentious vs. 'programmer' my preferred term - its precisely descriptive, a quality which i would expect programmers to cherish
Yes, a consultant, but what kind? 'I'm a consultant' Yes, but what do people consult you for? 'For when they need consulting' Yes, but about what? Are you a medical consultant, a security consultant, a civil engineer, a financial consultant, legal, something else? [puzzled look] "I'm - a - consultant."
Boring conversation anyway...

It's not a bitmap font, but has a sharp, clean look.
back to lucida console for me, which is perfectly legible at size 6 or 7... :/
in this font, the 1 is quite distinct, but the l seems too closely similar.
I like the default font in sublime, and how it clearly indicates and l by having a vertical line with lower right and upper left serifs
There's no reason be expecting a sans-serif!
