Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Four styles available
Sudo has Regular, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic styles available.
Pro Works well on Windows
Sudo is hand-hinted for good rendering on Windows.
Pro Good legibility
Different character categories are differentiated by height and alignment. Numbers are a line width smaller than capital letters, so there is no need for a dotted or slashed zero.
Pro It's simple, beautiful, and stylish
Pro Great for your eyes
Monofur is very legible. Even after staring at it for hours, your eyes won't get tired.
Pro Letterforms are highly distinct
The font is very legible due to the distinguished characters it contains.
Con Zero is not slashed or dotted
This makes for difficulty in distinguishing similar looking characters, such as the capital "O".
Con Lacks bold+italic
Monofur has a regular italic and bold typeface, but it lacks bold+italic. Syntax-capable editors can better display code based on function/class/context/markup work when at least 4 families are available to display.
Con Only characters from the Western charset work in many Windows apps
The font includes all characters for all European languages; however, in most programs using Unicode (such as WordPad or MS Word), only languages using Western charset can use this font. These include English, German, French, Spanish, and Norwegian.
Trying to use any languages like Czech, Hungarian (Central European), Bulgarian, Russian (Cyrillic), or Greek will make the font switch back to default font like Arial or Calibri, even though Monofur itself includes characters for those languages.
Authors didn't bother fixing the non-working Baltic / Central European / Greek / Cyrillic / Turkish character set for those years.
