The pixels of an OLED screen only draw power when they are illuminated. Dark themes save energy, which is important for portable computers and phones. As people get used to dark themes on their phones, they are going to bring that preference across to computers. Where is my OLED laptop?!!

I'm totally in the white-background-causes-eyestrain camp. You can turn the brightness of your monitor down to the point where black text on white background is tolerable, but then images look dark and lack detail. A dark theme makes just the text darker.
