Change font size in Mac OS X?

Hi,

I love Mac OS X, but is there anyway to make the overall font size smaller so I can get more stuff on the screen?

I'd love it if I had control over the fonts of Mac OS X the way I have control over them in the terminal window.

I hate to say it but sometimes I prefer my Windows coding environment at work because windows fonts are so tiny and I can get much more on the screen at one time. :-(

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Wow -- "ask you you shall receive"! Thanks for the quick answer. Awesome!

In addition, I hope to see Aqua extend it's window resizing capabilities in Leopard. It would be great if I could just run Eclipse at, say, 66% resolution and leave the rest of the OS normal.

Thanks again,
