- You may also use Light as, well, a light; whether it's for an elegant mood setting, or for interactive chromotherapy, it's possible to create ambient lighting in any room by adjusting Light's color settings. - Come again? You really want me to fork out $12 for THAT????

Hi there. I just wanted to let everyone know that Light is free to evaluate for 7 days with no restrictions. This is to ensures that those who purchase a license are those who actually find it useful and error-free on their computers. I invite you all to download the software and see for yourselves. Thanks!

It simply changes the desktop to white (or another one color background) WITHOUT A CHANCE TO REVERT TO THE PREVIOUS ONE. It really doesn't deserve one dollar.

90% CPU usage for a coloured window? This is a nice idea but a crazy price and obviously has a bug or two to work out...

I'm a little surprised by the reviews thus far. In sharp contrast to hundreds of the other applications out there that are all style and no substance, Light 2.0 is incredibly practical, devilishly clever, and has already become a mainstay on my desktop. Don't be swayed by reactionist babble. For the right users, Light 2.0 is a total winner.

A brand new desk lamp is about $8 and that can be used on other tasks too. Figure it out yourself. That's my 2 cents.

This is a great idea, but charging for it is a bit absurd. I MacGyvered my own last spring when I was organizing a bunch of old negatives. All you need to do is create a plain white desktop picture, and then set your brightness level to maximum. Same result, and enough money left for a pizza.
