I wasn't a big fan of the color schemes either, but like everything else in Vim, that too can be customized. For
Gvim (non terminal based GTK X app) you can add this:

in thread Editing features for advanced users
to the .gvimrc file in your home dir under Un*x and get my color scheme (which you may not like either :) ).
hi Normal guifg=#ffffff guibg=#000000
hi PreProc guifg=#ff80ff guibg=#000000
hi Statement guifg=#00d000 guibg=#000000
hi Comment guifg=#707070 guibg=#000000
hi Identifier guifg=orange guibg=#000000
hi Constant guifg=#6060ff guibg=#000000
hi Special guifg=#80f0f0 guibg=#000000
hi Cursor guifg=black guibg=red
I'm not sure where the equivalent windows .gvimrc file is.
perl -l -e "eval pack('h*','072796e6470272f2c5f2c5166756279636b672');"
