It's a little funny that "Zen mode", absolute quietness on screen to focus the mind without any distractions at all, has a little, largely unnecessary widget on screen that you can keep clicking back and forth that lets you change the color scheme.

I think it would be funny if they replaced that icon with a yin-yang symbol :)

Why? Zen doesn't have anything to do with that symbol, IIRC.

Hm, interesting. http://www.shaolin.org/zen/word-tao.html I think I had been confused by some modern "Zen Yoga" which refers to yin and yang more extensively.

I thought that too. It seems weird to include a setting in plain sight in a writing mode that's supposed to be completely focused on writing.

If it was auto-hide, it'd be fine.
