So cm.o what color backlight do you find aesthetically pleasing + good on the eyes? I'm stuck on the fence about green, yellow, orange or white for my greyboy.

The contrast for orange is spectacular, and cool looking. Honestly, all of those colors look great (in my experience), so you can't really go wrong with any of them.

Any inverted is ok. I recommend white, orange, or green inverted. I like white biverted

I third white biverted-  looks purple and grey,  very clear.   teal is my next best pick.    Anyone still make the RGB backlights?  I have a nonfinite one from a few years back - very cool.  Add some trim pots and you can have every color of the rainbow as per your whim.

Biverted teal is my favorite.

I find biverted yellow easiest on the eyes and since it's black on yellow lowering the contrast is like lowering the brightness.
