Programming font for VS2010

So, Visual Studio 2010 shipped. Now I have a problem: what font to use? My old standby, Dina, is a bitmap font so it doesn't work with the WPF text editor in VS2010.

Some things I look for in a programming font:

  • High information density - vertical height in particular. For example, I use Dina at 8pt.
  • Crisp, even lines
  • Strong distinction between bold and regular (for lexical highlighting)
  • Clearly unambiguous letters: l,1,0,O, and the like.
  • Balanced operators - good placement for <, >, {, }, etc.

Here's Dina 8pt in VS2008:
