Survey: Light or Dark

This week I am continuing with the simple survey series. Today my question is, do you prefer using a dark or light background when writing code?

I like a light background with dark text (usually black text on a white background), because I find it difficult to see when I change between different applications, and even to see clearly when I look away from the screen. Visual artefacts suck.

How about you? Sound off with me on Twitter: @bornsql .
