Adobe announces Source Code font

Today the Adobe Type team announced the release of their second open source type family, Source Code. This monospaced typeface is an adaptation of the open source type family released last month, Source Sans, which to date has been downloaded over 67,000 times from SourceForge. All six weights of Source Code and the source files can be downloaded from the Open@Adobe portal on SourceForge.

To learn more about the inspiration behind Source Code and how the design was adapted from Source Sans, refer to Paul Hunt’s Typblography post.

Not sure if it's because I'm used to Consolas or simply because it is, but I find Consolas a bit easier and comfortable to read.

@moonjungle I did try that, and it spurred this. :) I like Inconsolata and Consolas better than Source Code.
