I like the new Menlo font on Snow Leopard a lot. I tried copying it over to my Windows machine, but Windows does not like the format. Does anyone know if there's any legitimate way of getting Menlo on Windows?

Thank you.

Is it an OpenType font or some other format? –  e100 Oct 23 '09 at 15:40

To put that anther way, does the font file have an extension? –  Electrons_Ahoy Oct 23 '09 at 18:29
    
@alex, there's a new answer. the accepted anwer points at a similar font, while the last answer links to the menlo ttf file. not sure if legitimate, though :-/ –  Costin Gușă May 15 at 17:55

this font https://github.com/andreberg/Meslo-Font is designed to be similar to Menlo

IMO, Meslo is far better on the eye than DejaVu Sans –  jayrdub Aug 12 '13 at 22:17

I have found a github repo. Try here

Hope this helps.. :)

BTW, if you want to get any font from Mac over to your PC - just zip up the font(s) on the mac, and use CrossFont on PC to convert them. Done.

CrossFont doesn't handle ttc, and a lot of other types. –  foxyfennec Aug 16 '13 at 23:17

This may be a bit of a workaround - but the font is very similar to Bitstream Vera Sans Mono.

Here is a comparison (updated link) of Menlo and Bitstream Vera Sans Mono DejaVu Sans Mono (also based on Bitstream's original).

You can download the Bitstream set absolutely free (zip file).

Actually, the site you link to compares Menlo and DejaVu Sans Mono. (It also notes that both Menlo and DejaVu Sans Mono are based on Bitstream Vera Sans Mono.) Still, +1 for reminding folks about these great open source fonts. –  Telemachus Oct 23 '09 at 19:18

I split ttc into ttf files using FontForge and I installed Menlo font on Ubuntu. It doesn't look exactly like on a Mac though. MacOS is better at font rendering.

Would you please upload it somewhere so I can use it? thanks in advance and Kind Regards. –  AMgdy Apr 25 '11 at 11:23

Try converting the file to a Windows format; you could try DfontSplitter to do this. However, I'm not sure if this is legal.
