Thanks guys, sunset will be gone in next beta.

Thank you.

Nothing wrong with the black (more natural) sunset, I have something like that on my mobile phone from a sunset image I took. It is just the washed out white (unnatural) sunset looks terrible.

Because more people hated it than liked it - the white sunset of the free version was truly awful. I don't think anyone would object if the interface was the same black sunset. But avast want to differentiate between paid and free as they have done in the past.

Black up.
White down.

As this is a matter of choice, why don't they let the black, the beautiful, for the Premium and the white, the ugly, for the Free :D
I love to be sarcastic :D

@Lisandro:

Yes the black version looks better, maybe a psychologic try from the marketing team to get us to the paid versions?

v2016-2236 beta GUI still stinks.

As a matter of fact it stinks worse than a 50 year old cesspool. 

Q) Avast keeps asking for feedback but is anyone listening? 
A) Obviously not.

Well, v2015 was exactly the same scheme (free white, paid black).

@Para-Noid: Why do you think noone listens to feedback? Version 2016 is basically feature-locked for a long time now.

The feedback will go into the updated 2016 versions. (I hope)

Why is there so much empty space below "Run Smart Scan" button? It looks unbalanced and off center.

Well, v2015 was exactly the same scheme (free white, paid black).

The disappointing thing is that the Question was something like 'how do you find the contrast' - the answer was terrible - the white sunset is the pits as far as contrast goes.

What makes anyone thing that a totally white screen is going to be any better as far as contrast goes - it still stinks.

The dark one looks good (that empty space below though...), but not good enough to jutify paying for a product just because of a different GUI skin...
