I agree when using it with ChromeOS additional storage generally isn't needed.

So, I kinda found an icon theme I liked that was all pink, so when I rebuilt the 7490 with the drive swap...I went whole hog on the pink...

Very much realize won't be a lot of peoples style, but I'm REALLY liking it...

So took me a while to find a setup I liked the colors on for the Thinkpad. To answer the question, yes, I like BRIGHT colors that burn your retinas...

Yeah, not a fan of dark. Won't buy dark cars, don't like dark themes on my computers, etc. Probably at least partially due to my color blindness, I like bright, vibrant, annoying colors.

Anymore I do. I really liked dark when i was a kid. Not anymore. I wear dark clothes because they're easy to not look like you're a sociopath with horribly clashing colors. But if I weren't color blind, I can pretty much guarantee my clothes would mostly be incredibly bright and vibrant too when I could find them.

Dark themes reduce glare and thus eyestrain and make print easier to see. I use it because it helps the issues with my eyes thus, bright and crazy isnt happening.

For me the dark themes make my eyes hurt. Too bright like the yellow does too, but the pink is good, along with most middle ground schemes. But then, I also have my eyes hurt when attempting to use low resolution trying to focus on objects that large that close. My eyes really don't plain like functioning is what it boils down to.
