Of course the Windows operating systems can reverse the screen on the  
desktop, but individual programs all have to be programmed specially  
to be reversed too, and that is where the Mac is superior...because  
with no programming necessary, everything reverses on the  
Mac...inside all programs as well...

The Macintosh screen reversed in that way is so amazingly  
beautiful...it is like a negative with color touches...quite amazing  
to work with it...and yes, sighted people benefit from the reversed  
screen too...I am starting to use it now when my eyes are tired...

For those who already own a Mac, go to System Preferences and click  
on Universal Access. or....here is a keystroke: Control-Option- 
Command-8....that toggles your screen and all programs to white on  
black and back again to black on white...

Now that the new Mac operating system, Leopard, has just been  
released, it apparently has new features for accessibility that are  
awesome...I have not changed over to the new Mac Leopard operating  
system yet, but I plan to, and I look forward to their new features  
for tired eyes...
