Energy-saving theme !?!

Recommended Posts

As already suggested in ReactOS forum, I found an interesting article @ ecoIron that points to a very interesting page about monitor energy consumptions:

Monitor Energy Information

So, why don't we release an energy-saving theme ?

Some (maybe usefull) legal links:

VistaVG Black Theme for Windows XP

Royale Noir: secret XP theme uncovered

Sweet Black Theme for Windows XP

XP Black Final 2

...and many other @ deviantART

It would be great to do it within February 15, the Energy Saving Day.

There is no point... Just put a black wallpaper or don't put a wallpaper and paint desktop black.

Black screens only save energy on CRT monitors.

a black screen on an LCD monitor actually uses slightly more power as it requires power to charge the quarts to block the backlight. On an LCD monitor the most power efficiant background is white.

Good point. I browsed around on this site and it seems outdated. All this information only applies to CRT's.
