    Grr, was hoping "dark mode" referred to turning off all privacy.....not screen colours.

    This could indicate that OLED screens will soon become common on laptops soon - dark modes are far more power efficient.

    Me too - I thought it would be the slightly reduced functionality but better privacy toggle.

    How can anyone not upgrade from Win 7 now?


    Seriously, I'm looking forward to trying dark mode and some BASH action.

    Ditto, I'm curious to see if dark mode cures any of the display issues I've been having with Sublime Text 3.

    Just disappointed that no one (else?) made a 'come over to the dark side' Star Wars quip.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    I have to admit that I'm excited for this upgrade. I'm using the dark mode in Office 2016 and I'm starting to like it.

    Re: Latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build offers Dark Mode

    when I opened Hexus and saw 'Dark mode' there I was excited fooling myself that for the first time my copy of W10 will not share my secrets to some MS server in Seattle. OLED screens on laptops? that's nice and expensive.

    Re: Latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build offers Dark Mode

    There's already a way to enable dark mode via simple registry change:

    http://windows.wonderhowto.com/how-to/enable-hidden-dark-mode-windows-10-0163168/

    Don't know how this will differ from the Dark Mode they're referring to here but it could just turn out to be a feature that was already available and not enabled in the first place than a completely new feature which MS are trying to market it as.

    Perhaps I don't want to downgrade from Win7 to that Win10 piece of invasive garbage.

    Re: Latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build offers Dark Mode

    Nice to see them admitting that dark mode exists. You can currently only implement it via a registry edit. (At least I think that's what I did to turn it on.)
