I have before but it makes the menu and dock look very out of place to everything else which is grey and white. I find white text on dark background easier to read, but since it doesn't effect Finder, Safari or anything else, it does little good for me.

My MBP has black bezel, so dark menu bar is a must. If I was using MBA, I would probably use light menu bar. What I would really like, is to use dark menu bar and light dock combination. The light dock with transparency looks great. I am quite sure I wrote Apple at feedback about implementing this option.

I find it makes whatever I'm doing more focused. That said I would like to see what dark mode on other apps would look like. Pixelmator tries the dark mode look but I don't think they have it right.

I have it changed to dark mode in the evening by f.lux. In the morning it is back in light version. Basically during summer it is ~always light due to the late sunset and early sunrise :)

I use Dark Mode, simply because I spend 85% of my day in Adobe apps, where I have the GUI set to Adobe's version of "Dark Mode."

I don't actually spend a ton of time in the Finder, but I agree with the sentiment that Apple really needs to complete the Dark Mode by adjusting windows to match.

...and bringing back the menubar shadow!

Fingers crossed for 10.12, if there's a "full dark mode" in the upcoming OS, that would actually be kind of awesome :)

I use the dark menu bar as well. I noticed that when I switch back after a while, I really cannot stand the white one anymore.

I've always used the light menu bar/dock. However, with a few apps turning dark on their menu/button bars, I'm going to give it a shot now.
