ro6: I wonder when is DPR going to drop this white text/black background display? I understand that's part of the general design, but in terms of readability, it's a poor choice. At least you could use the normal dark text/light background on the major sections where a lot of text is displayed.

Books and other prints are not comparable to computer screens (or TVs).
In case of print, the pigments are combined, in case of screen - lights. The base for pigments must be white, for lights - black.
So, actually, the black background for screen is natural, as much as white for the print, and I think it is more pleasant for the eyes generally.
But yes, real problem here is contrast, exacerbated with modern LCDs that tend to pump contrast high.
