Not here, but mainly only because I tend to use Linux and/or GNU
applications, and they're too dumb to realise that the world is not a
VGA textmode display.

I usually just hit control-alt-cloverleaf-8 when I find white-on-black
a bit hard on the eyes. It inverts the colours from said duff "all the
world's a 386" tools too, but I don't generally find this a problem.

My mother protected me from the world and my father threatened me with it.
