tried this and 'source code pro' on a terminal in ubuntu 16.04. DejaVu Sans Mono Book is way better hands down. Source Code Pro renders characters at different width at fixed intervals, making text look ugly.
Similar letters are well distinguished (1, l, I, 0, O)
This font works great when it comes to read and revise long portions of code, since legatures facilitate significantly code reading. In my experience specific bash/zsh combinations may activate wrong macros which generate bad syntax, so I'm not recommending it as a terminal font.
Needs support for ligatures
Wrong characters combinations generate wrong syntax on bash/zsh
