It only works if you're sitting in a darkly-lit room, using dark desktop
theme, and don't routinely switch to e.g. web browser, wherein most of
the websites are dark-on-light.

Otherwise, the switching between levels of contrast will put even more
strain on the eyes. I'm sure you'll notice that when you get a few more
years sitting before a computer under your belt. I'm 26, and I've
started paying attention to this 2-3 years ago.

I agree, the cursor shouldn't blink by default.
