I'm not sure if it's a myth or true, it's said that stroboscope effects
can cause epileptic shocks even for averaged people. (Hopefully this
won't cause a discussion as the one about 'time'. ;)
A vertically frequency of 60 Hz won't cause an epileptic shock, but at
least effect your well-being.
Anyway, stroboscope effects are used as weapons.
At 60 Hz I would use a dark theme, unfortunately dark themes have
disadvantages, regarding to reflections and for the desktop they usually
have side effects, such as invisible fonts, scroll bars etc.. Ardour's
dark seem IMO is good.
I wonder how good modern displays are and if they should be able to
replace monitors for every usage, how expensive those displays are.
The artists I know (among others, some famous comic drawers), having
brand new 'common' displays, use their old monitors again, because the
displays are unusable for graphics, excepted of the video tablets they
additionally use. Those video tablets are very expensive and the usage
is different to the usage of a display or monitor. Perhaps very
expensive displays are able to replace a monitor.
For DAW IMO even a cheap display at all events is the better choice, I
guess ... less electric smog? Space-saving!
I'm unsure if I should switch from monitor to display, as I'm not
drawing for print media, perfect colours aren't that important for me.
But when playing a single coil guitar, a display might be better.
