YES

As one of the few grey-haired people in the office, I suspected it made people think I was wedded to old technology and not willing to embrace new ideas.

I found the effect could be partly mitigated by switching to a black-on-white colour scheme, but finally I decided the eye strain was not worth it.

Even demonstrating thoroughly ZTW's superior capabilities did not seem to dispell the impression that it was somehow "old-fashioned".

In a way this is a sad reflection on modem life, where the quick sound bite seems more important than measured in-depth analysis. SIGH
