I have a question. This talk about backlight colors, and the preference for
"white" got me thinking. My gut reaction to white is "ugh". Listen to my
reasoning. Wouldn't white be too brilliant for nighttime work? I mean, if
it's totally dark, and you turn on the white backlight, the starkness of it
would hurt, wouldn't it? Does anybody have any experience with white
backlighting? Isn't that why the lighting is green? so it isn't too
brilliant? Very curious to hear the pros and cons and whatnot...
