From a designer's eye, overall, I like the new look. Congrats! With my glasses and 23" monitor I have no problem reading, but I can definitely see the point many are making, and have to agree with them. The color scheme is definitely softer on the eyes, however I would also put in my vote to make the text default lighter. Not necessarily pure white, the one just next to it like I used here would be sufficient IMO... EDIT: I'll add my vote to the "multiple color setting option" too, that seems like a good idea.
