A minor gripe about this poll... at first I assumed the poll was a vote 
on whether one prefers multiple colored windows in general (including 
borders and titlebars), versus windows all of one color.  I think this 
was the context of the discussion above.  But it appears from the 
further description on the poll that it's about whether or not to have 
white backgrounds, assuming multi-colored windows.  (People might vote 
differently on these two questions, at least I would.)

It's a cool idea to have polls on these sorts of topics, though... it's 
good to get a rough sample of opinions.

This particular poll as it stands seems to be "neck and neck" right now 
(a horse-racing term meaning very close, for the non-native English 
speakers out there :) ).
