A lot of people have been asking me about my Visual Studio settings, as I tend to favor a black background over the traditional white. Traditional. Heh. Remember the DOS days when it was all black? Guess that's just my old school showing through, but I prefer it and feel it's easier on the eyes. I use this in my blog posts as well as any presentations I do and my day to day work.
You can download them from here. They're based on Scott Hanselman's settings file that he posted here, except mine uses only Consolas, the only programmer font you'll ever need. You'll need the Consolas font installed for it to work (but I think it'll fall back to Courier New if you don't). If you're on Vista, you've already got it. If you're on XP you can grab the Consola Font Pack here.
Works for me. YMMV.
