    I won't comment on insomnia due to the blues, but others may have some input here.

    On Tenforums, the various screen styles for the forums all seem to have a basic blue foundation - even the Modern Green fades to blue as I scroll down. Only the Dark styles offer a little relief from blue, with their various shades of charcoal and grey backgrounds, and occasional orange - and Vb2 looks like an impending thunderstorm, with its pale greys and heavy dark headers - although I detect a touch of blue there too. The least blue pale style seems to be the Mobile Style, with the graduated pale orange quote boxes.

    Everything hints back to an earlier era of Windows, as though Tenforums never really left Windows 2000 behind. The fonts available clearly have none of the screen fonts from Windows Vista and above (XP never introduced any mainstream Latin fonts AFAIK) - some of the newest available are Palatino Linotype and Trebuchet MS, with the default being good old Arial from Windows 3.1. There seems to be some bug in the font box by the way - my choice has now become stuck between Microsoft Sans... and Verdana

    Now I know this is all for backwards compatibility, but wouldn't it be fun to have just one forum style that uses Windows 10 type formatting and window styles, defaulting to SegoeUI, but having Candara etc, without a blue pixel in sight?

    I'm a long time f.lux user and have a similar app on my smartphone. I like that MS is building this into the OS. There's plenty of scientific data regarding the potential harmful effects of blue light at night. Here are a couple of articles:

    This seems like such a useless gimmick.
    I agree. My monitor color settings are precisely what I want them to be. Hands off, Microsoft! Now, if they can do something to dim blue LEDs on the monitor and PC case, more power to them.

    I am sure that it would be a feature you can decide to switch it on or off, and all the user of calibrated monitors do not have to worry about because the calibration sw manages the color settings, so i wouodn't mind if not interested about this feature.

    I think they may need to rename the blue light tool unless Microsoft buys the rights to it. I think that name might be a trademark. Have you heard of the Blue Light Special :)
