Pd-extended is not only about the externals : there are several extra 
features in it, that you won't find in vanilla.

Actually, it's also possible to run pd-extended without the bundled 
externals... if you are short on space, you can delete lots of folders in

Btw, have you also tried changing the brightness & contrast of your 
monitor(s) ? The white does not have to be flooding you...

I also tend to very much like bright-on-dark, but nowadays I also use 
dark-on-bright in equal amounts... it's not as bad as used to believe.
