Fuzzy text in VS2010

So I finally moved to Visual Studio 2010. This is a very nice IDE, but one thing that annoys me is that the text (code) seems fuzzy compared to VS2008. My eyes don't like it.

I googled it and there were several suggestions of using the free Visual Studio theme editor "Visual Studio Color Theme Editor":

However, this only allows for changing the theme of everything around the code area - not the code area itself.

Then I found some articles about the fonts used in VS2010 and it turned out that it uses a font called Consolas for the code whereas VS2008 uses Courier New. So I simply changed Consolas to Courier New in VS2010 and my eyes were instantly happy :-)
