Microsoft Sans Serif, Normal, 8 under Windows
Liberation Sans, Normal, 8 under Linux (Wine)

And I increased MinLineHeight to -6 pixels on both systems for much better readability. :)

Tahoma font, standard for Office 2000 and Windows 2000.

On 1024*768 or larger screen, when I began using the computer the standard was 800*600, I use it in 10pt. But since it doesn't alllow for too much information in each column, and file names overall are getting longer beyond reason, I leave it at 8pt on anything but HD resolutions when putting Total Commander on other people's screens. I leave it bolded or not, depending on how I feel at that moment, without consistency.

I always replace the Sans Serif with Tahoma. Always. MS Sans Serif just doesn't look finished and even. I'd use "Trebuchet MS" if given no other choice.

Some people who came from Windows 98 era, have created articles online about how to eradicate Tahoma and replace it with MS Sans Serif again. I don't get them.

When I had my Windows 98 PC and experimented with it, I renamed the Tahoma font to MS Sans Serif so that it would add modern look to all Windows dialogs. That caused problems because lines of text would occasionally become longer, and get cut off or word-wrapped. But I like this font.

For some reason it looks "modern" exactly at 8pt. At 10pt, which I use, it is still good but does no longer carry that "professional corporate" image of Windows 2000. The stability and seriousness of Windows NT 5 is embodied in the Tahoma font for me.
