I sorry I seem to have offended you.  I was merely trying to point out
in a light-hearted manner that minimising the amount of light entering
the eye, if really does reduce eye stress, cannot be the whole solution,
with which you seem to agree.

I have also had issues with eye strain and, from the information I was
able to find, decided that the evidence seems to favour dark-on-light as
being less stressful and that the brightness of the display should be
similar to the ambient brightness.

If you have any information to the benefits of light-on-dark (which I
have always felt looks way cooler - your dark version of angry fruit
salad being no exception) and brightness minimisation, I would be
interested to read it.
