'heart of darkness'
ROFL Yes indeed UI design is paramount, I do like the new 'heart of darkness' UI, but good UX (User Experience) design is probably to be able to customize the UI to your requirements.
I prefer a neutral grey to work with myself, one of my freinds likes B&W as his sole focus is b&w photography, due to his colour blindness, so the issue is one of personal preference and need.
