I am curious as to what percentage of people are using Dark Mode vs Light mode. Or perhaps you use both.

Also, do you think we need another style option to add to the above?

I switched to Dark mode as soon as it was available - I prefer it.
Not sure if we need a third one. Guess it would depend on what it was?

Tried dark mode but found it a strain on the eyes and reverted to light mode

Never dark. Not here nor any other forum or app.
Even if there's another theme I'll stick to the default.

At first I hated dark, went back to light in about 10 seconds. Within days, my eyes literally felt the strain of light mode, especially in a room with low light level so I switched back to dark and am still using it weeks later. It takes a bit of getting used to, but I like it now. Perhaps all I needed to do was dim the monitor when the white hurt my eyes, but since every other thing on the laptop is in white and doesn't bother me, I didn't think that the monitor light level might be the real cause. The one thing bad about dark mode is that some people seem to be formatting their text as black (or some such colour) which can't be read in dark mode without selecting (back lighting) it. Someone suggested removing the ability to format text in those colours but I suspect it's not possible since you can type in your own colour values.

I tried dark, but prefer light. Might be because I'm normally somewhere with good light?
