    Is the red hard on your eyes?
    As a old guy its hard to see and read.
    What do you all think?

    I think it's the same red? Something else is different... I dunno...it rules though.

    I'm only twenty and I think the red on white is a bit harsh. My eyes are getting tired very fast.

    I've only looked around a little, but I think I like the old stand-by black better. There's just something about the red that is hard to adjust to. Could be just my ancient eyes complaining, I don't know...

    Yep, the red is painful on my eyes. I was lookin' around in the Control Panel for a color selection, but didn't see anything. Ryan, is there a chance for something less "arresting"? vic

    It is a little hard on the eyes other than that nice up grade.

    There is probably a reason books,newspapers,most printed medias use black.If the red were more opaque it would not be so harsh.

    Red is a good Marxist color...

    Just hope it doesn't trigger a siezure, as I might miss one of the petri dishes with the andromeda strain in it...

    I happen to be part of the 10% of the male population that is red green colour blind. It certainly makes it hard to read.

    I'm an old geezer too, I guess, cause the red's hard for me to handle for very long.
