Which visual studio themes you use? Interesting Survey

I have been using Visual studio since 2003 version and it's been decade and still my favorite editor. With visual studio 2010 they have introduced blue theme and With Visual Studio 2012 they also introduced a black theme. Lots of people are using lots of different themes. Some people like black themes and some does not. I had always argument with my friends about visual studio themes. So I thought it will be a good idea to get survey about themes and so what I have done is to put a survey on my blog. As you know this blog is technical blog so most of my readers will be developers. So far I have got a interesting data so I thought it will be a good idea to write a blog post and share those data with you.

So till now I have got total 124 votes for my survey  and here is the result of the survey till now.


From, the above survey I get following fact.
  1. Lots of people like black themes out of 124 votes I got 49 for black themes. So black theme is most the popular one.
  2. To my surprise light theme comes second which I thought will be a third place but I got 39 votes for that.
This survey is still open for the five days. So if you are new to this blog and still not cast your votes then its right time to do.
