G8 has been our most love-it-or-hate-it GUI so far. As we add features to it, I'll work on cleaning it up so that it preserves the flavor and attitude of the original while making it easier on the eyes.
I agree about the contrast as long as the circles surrounding the dials are the same brightness. The circles are more aesthetically pleasing, especially to contrast the hard edged text.
