Over the last decade, I've been actively taking steps to reduce my reliance on Windows and switch to Linux as my primary OS. I can hear Izzy enthusiastically cheering!
I'm down to getting rid of my last 3 Windows-only applications, and I'm now engaged in the process of finding a suitable Linux distribution.
Having an OS that fully supports a dark mode (dark theme) is a hard requirement for me. The Windows ecosystem is a nightmare when it comes to supporting a dark mode. I'm hoping to find something much better in the Linux world.
To be dark mode compliant, all elements of the OS and applications running under it must support a dark background with lighter text. Ideally, the user will be able to set the values for these colors, as user-desired contrast plays a key role with dark user interfaces.
A key necessity is not having some user interface elements that are illegible or impossible to discern due to dark on dark or light on light elements (over 90% of Windows apps I have tested have this problematic issue).
Gratis is preferred, but not a requirement.
- Full dark mode support
- No telemetry (or telemetry that can easily be fully disabled before the first transmission)
- Stability for daily use
