    Is the Notification Center still crazy bright and mismatched when using "dark menubar and Dock" or was that fixed?

    it was the only reason I didn't update to Sierra and will be the reason I won't update to High Sierra. I can't take it.

    that's one hell-of-a-reason to not run a newer (and better) OS. i mean, i'd prefer it 'matched' (in fact, i've run a dark menubar with hacks consistently since 10.3), but i wouldn't give up the other features & benefits of sierra (& now high sierra) because a GUI detail isn't what i prefer. still, it's your right to do that....

    Thanks skwood, I guess I'll stay on El Capitan then.

    I don't get why this eyesore is just ignored, does nobody at Apple use "Dark Mode".

    For me...there is literally nothing useful or exciting in Sierra compared to El Capitan. Not one single feature.
    I would have updated anyway if they had not destroyed the interface.

    The new features that are really exciting to me coming in High Sierra are in Safari 11 and that's a separate download (thank goodness).

    a new OS isn't only about 'new features', it's about change, and improvement under the hood... and that's what excites me most. just think it's a shame you won't move forward over the color of the notification center window. how much time do you spend there? and what if apple never changes it? will you still be on el cap when 10.14, 10.15 etc happen?
    just curious...

    That would be a shame.

    But the UI is something that I as a user look at every single day for hours and hours... which makes it a very important thing. Maybe more important then some mysterious "under the hood" improvement, but definitely equally so.

    under the hood improvements can mean: better, faster, more stable performance. for example, i want my car to look good, but even moreso, i want it to perform well. and really, how much time do you spend looking at the notification center window? seriously, there's no reason to assume apple will ever make a dark NC window. so, seems futile to wait for it. and if it happens, great; if not, at least you're enjoying 'state-of the art' performance (more or less, lol)...

    They already did.

    It was always dark, its entire existence (years and years) until last year.

    All I and many many others want is an option to have it dark again, like it always was.

    right, what i meant was "there's no reason to assume apple will ever make a dark NC window again". either way, giving up improvements & enhancements for the NI window (again, how many times a day do you view that?) seems... sad. and when you say "many, many others'... are we talking dozens? thousands? millions? honestly, apple does what it choses to do, and i doubt that will change. anyway, whatever works for you...
