Update your Visual Studio "Theme"

I picked Jeff Atwood's theme, increased the text editor font size to 12, and used Tomas Restrepo's stylesheet to transform it to Visual Studio 2008 settings from Visual Studio 2005 settings. Using "Tools->Import and Export" is also a great way to back up your current configuration so that you can undo a mistake later.

I found the instructions and a lot of themes here->Scott Hanselman's Computer Zen - Visual Studio Programmer Themes Gallery

Many of the blogs linked from Scott's article on VS themes are worth a look.
