On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

The light theme is much easier for me to read. And, according to ergonomic research over the last 40 years (all that I've read, anyway), dark text on a light background appears to be easier to read for most people. Hey - do you think that's why virtually all web sites use dark text on a light background?

Great improvement. Somewhere around 99.999999999999999% of web sites use black text on white and the sky doesn't fall in, so it does work. For image assessment and editing: yes, dark background. For text: black on white background. But you'd better keep the white-on-black as an option or you'll never hear the end of it.

Simon Garrett: Taking Adobe UK prices, the Photoshop-only CC subscription is 50% more than the price of the upgrade, amortised over 18 months. Compared to the previous situation where one could upgrade every 3 releases it represents a 550% price hike.

Add to that the uncertainty of future pricing: I can guarantee I can keep using my Photoshop CS5. I can't guarantee the price of CC.

Worse: the upgrade price to CS6 had now disappeared, and can't be found.

I really can't trust Adobe over anything now.

Bet they haven't increased their development staff by 50%. Upgrading every year simply means you don't get so many new features. I think it's fair to continue to compare to an 18 month cycle.

Your first point: I can't guarantee future upgrade prices, but I don't have to upgrade. I can simply continue using CS5. That way I don't have to pay anything more.

Jack L Casner: Yes, we liberals control the media. And i am the King of Romania.

I've not come across "libtards" before; I assume it's a derogatory term. So those from the opposite political extreme in the US would be "Tea-tards"?
