Well that's a matter of preference, it's not like it's rocket science to select a different theme anyway.

Personally I find dark high contrast themes easier on the eye.

Operating systems should never even have the ability to theme them, It only creates even more inconsistancies. But then, the UI should be well-designed from the start too, so its a catch 22.

sure it can create inconsistancies between computers, but done properly you should never have to see an app that looks different on your own machine.

Too many per app UI themes is a problem that both windows and mac os have right now.
