White background is just not suitable for computer screens... it's good for papers.

But it helps to save the environment if you have a TFT-screen

Using Island at the moment, have done for a little while.
I usually move between them all a bit but usually end up back at white eventually.

You'd better go for more useful ways to save energy. For example turning your computer off at night.

That is interesting, I use dark theme, and I hope it actually saves energy, though it's not such big difference no matter what.

edit: Dark monk, I dunno why I like it.

Probably one of those lurker people that never posts.
I like that our community is so tight, it's actually normal to question a new name.
A lot of big forums wouldn't do that, or even care.

It depends on what type of screen you use
If you're using a flatscreen (LCD) it saves more energie to use bright themes because the background-light is lighning everytime and it costs more energy to overlay the brightness.
If you're using a non-flat screen it's better to use a dark/black theme because then the intensity of the plasmata isn't as high as if u use bright/white themes

No sorry
I just have seen it on a german TV-show last week
Maybe Kobold has see it too we could ask him
The technical details are taken from the book: "So funktionieren Computer" from Ron white ISBN 3-8272-6714-5

EDIT: found a source that proves my claim

sry it's in german I take a translation with babelfish in the spoiler
source: http://www.chip.de/news/c1_news_28434926.html

Quote:
Auf Blackle.com oder Earthle.com finden Websurfer eine voll funktionsfähige Suchmaschine ganz in Schwarz. Laut Google soll dies aber nicht so viel Energie sparen wie Ontkush behauptet. Bill Weihl von Google bezieht sich in einem Weblog-Beitrag auf eine australische Studie, wonach dunkle Bilder nur bei alten Röhrenmonitoren bis zu 10,8 Watt pro Stunde sparen. LCD-Monitore würden gleich viel und in einigen Fällen sogar mehr Strom verbrauchen, um Schwarz darzustellen. Google schätzt, dass schon 75 Prozent aller Bildschirme auf dem Markt mit LCD-Technik funktionieren.

LCD monitors would use equal much and in some cases even more energy, in order to represent black. Google estimates that function already 75 to per cent of all screens on the market with LCD technology.
