Since I switch between editors and platforms (linux, windows) a lot, it's important for code to look similar between them. I like dark themes, but it is too jarring when switching between applications that don't necessarily do dark themes (e.g. Excel, web sites, SQL tools, etc.) So, switching from a dark editor to a light spreadsheet and back to the editor causes a lot of strain on the eyes. So, it seems better to keep everything at about the same level of brightness across applications. This way a can adjust monitor contrast and brightness to be comfortable. Having solarized light available in so many tools helps make things more consistent. I find it also helps to change the font to a medium weight version to make for a better experience.
