Same here, something typical for a non window managed X would keep things
transparent. Black is the colour of non working or failed hardware.
Well, as it is, it appears quite clear. I see the black/white pattern
only in few cases, e.g. when using plain xinit. It was, so far, a good
indication that a window manager is missed. But thats probably a matter of
taste like for instance the log messages during the boot process being
hidden by a "nice" distro screen.
