Hi folks -- I was one of the early commenters on this. And Paul gave
me a, ahem, strong recommendation. All caps. Neon lights, blinking:

        TRY IT OUT ON AN XO-1.75

None of what Paul says seems to make sense until you try it out on an
XO-1.75. Outdoors, in the sun. You can yum update now, or you can get
os12 in a couple hours.

You can mimic it on earlier hw -- take it to the bright sunlight. Dim
it to the lowest backlight. Now hit the 'dimmer' key for greyscale.
