Dear people-who-make-software, please either respect all of the choices I’ve made about screen color or reject them uniformly and completely. Don’t kinda do one or the other some of the time, sort-of. Not even if your favorite background image is, like, totally awesome. Just choose one of those options and stick with it, so that my light-grey text on your light-grey backgrounds doesn’t make your product completely unusable.
This was a solved problem on Windows 3.0 and MacOS 7.1.
