Font Smoothing for Windows Server 2003 RDP

A few days ago I posted my recent love affair with a dark color scheme for Visual Studio, but completely forgot to mention that using a Remote Desktop session to a Windows 2003 will not work very nicely with the Consolas font used by that scheme because the font-smoothing required by that font won’t come across the wire.

Thanks Bryant!
