Desktop color & standard Windows fonts

By Hiro_Protagonist ·
Was wondering if anyone had seen an article on which desktop color is easiest on your eyes (emits the least ammount of energy) makes the monitor last longer. I have a hunch it is black, it seems to make my eyes strain the least and I'm trying toconvince my IT manager to make it part of our policy to have standard desktop color, standard windows color and fonts.
Also, is there any truth to the thought that changing these options (colors,fonts) from the Windows Standard will use more System Resources on a W9x box ???

More resources used.

I don't think choosing colors and fonts keeps the default set from also loading, so it likely would require a little bit more of the system to customize.

Thats what I thought too, that the standard colors and fonts are built into explorer.exe and that any changes are read from an outside source like a.ini file or something and that would require extra precious system resources. I would love some proof to back this up though. Thanks for any help
