The Fedora Project’s in person events are great for picking up new applications and tips from other people.   I love it when little surprises come along that make the desktop experience more pleasant.  Discovering Terminator was the last time this happened.  At the Fedora Talk FAD, Paul Frields took my terminal window to a higher level by suggesting switching to the Inconsolata font.  It is a very pleasant fixed width font that I’m using just about everywhere now.

$ su -c 'yum install levien-inconsolata-fonts'

It turns out there are several other programming (fixed width) fonts that people love as well.  They are worth checking out if you are looking for some other fixed width font options.
