    FontSquirrel shows Cousine as having a dotted zero, but other than that it’s just a newer version of the same design with a different license. Liberation is GPL (free), Cousine is SIL (free but in a different way). The Wikipedia article for “Liberation fonts” has details.

    Another great monospaced font is Damien Guard’s Envy Code R. Set it to 12.5 points like he recommends. It looks great even without anti-aliasing, for those of us who love that retro dotted-letter vibe.

    I love Everson Mono, by Evertype. It’s VERY readable , even at 4px, and Looks too perfect to be real.
