OSNews, Generic OSes Now that the holidays are upon us (happy holidays!) and the year is about to end, we at OSNews thought it time to finally lift the veil a little bit on the next version of OSNews - OSNews 5. I've hinted at this next version of OSNews here and there in the comments, but we think it's time to make it all a little bit more official by taking in some initial feedback.

Same here, it's much easier on my eyes. Whenever I'm working in Xfce or other X WMs I always choose a theme with white or light grey text on a dark background.

Me too. I always liked dark themes, too bad most sites use a migraine-inducing white or similar background. It would make sense in a magazine or some other printed material, but on computer monitors it makes little sense why bright background colors are so common.

I've been going dark for a while, lately I have been going dark and monochrome, so the OS just fades into the background. Works pretty good for most things, but surfing the web is painful, as white webpages will sear my brain.

I find that's usually because of ridiculously high display brightness levels :p

That only helps somewhat, and can make everything else not look right.
