good linux fonts?

I just switched from W2K to RH9. I used to use Courier New size 13 and it looked just fine on W2K. I tried using courier, courier 10 pitch, and quite a few other fonts but none of them look as good as W2K or even the terminal or the KTextPad editor.

Any suggestions?

See http://intellij.net/forums/thread.jsp?forum=27&thread=84163 . I suggest Bitstream Vera Mono or Lucida Typewriter.

Both lucida typewriter and lucida sans typewriter look so nice outside but look quite bad in IntelliJ. Why doesn't IntelliJ use same/native font rendering? Antialising on TFT screens looks too bad. I will attach some screen shots soon.

JVM issue. By the way, font rendering is WAY better on JDK 1.5 -- but don't expect to be able to (perfectly) run IDEA under 1.5 anytime soon.
