Mono-space font for Eclipse and Python

Was looking for the best font for Eclipse and Python. I use size 10, and these are my favorites: 
Eclipse with Droid Sans Mono font

Eclipse with Liberation Mono font

I now always use Liberation Mono font as the default monospace font in Ubuntu.  I see several advantages in it over Droid Sans Mono font:
  1. Digit '0' is distinguishable  from letter 'O'
  2. I like 'g' letter better
  3. Liberation Mono has Bold type face, and you can see what this mean in console:
Notice bold font (Liberation Mono)
Notice bold font (Liberation Mono) in Emacs
No bold font (Droid Sans Mono) in Emacs
