A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
My vision is not too bad, but unfortunately — maybe because of my age — it is stressful to me to look at white on black.
On Debian wheezy I could not find an obvious way to change the top panel to black on white.
There are some hints on the web that involve either editing CSS files or downloading extensions outside Debian, but I will not try such things.
Does GNOME 3.4 allow me to easily switch to black on white?
(Btw: GNOME 2 and XFCE 4 both feature black text on white background, which is also in line with most books and newspapers.)
OT: Accessibility problem with GNOME 3.2

(Btw. In the default theme, the look-and-feel of GNOME 3 seems to be less uniform/consistent than GNOME 2. Some windows/dialogs look completely different than most. But maybe these things are fixed in 3.4, which I will try as soon as it is in Debian.)

They don't want to limit the options, but if you explain the reasoning (need it for a11y), then it can be properly addressed.
E.g., option in a11y dialog maybe to do slight contract change (or background). Not the full back/white stuff.

Thanks in advance!
