Discussion on: Why Most Developers Prefer The Dark Theme IDE?

I've read a lot about this subject over the years and all the so-called "experts" say the exact opposite, but they also say to lessen the contrast to be softer on the eyes, for example a background of 0xEFEFEF and 0x0F0F0F text color...

I personally get massive headaches from light screens, but not other brighter lights except for the sun so I can't do without a dark theme.

Personal preference is the most important. If anyone is comfortable with dark go with dark or comfortable with white goes with white.
