    Apparently this guy has:

    How to enable Yosemite's hidden dark mode | Cult of Mac

    Beta testers eager to try out the the new OS X 10.10 feature were disappointed to find out it didn’t make it into the first Yosemite beta, but our friend Jean-David Gadina, a developer at DigiDNA, has done some digging into the OS X Yosemite beta and discovered a new file not present in Mavericks that can be manipulated to enable the hidden dark mode feature.

    • Open your /System/Library folder by clicking Go >> Computer on the Apple menu bar, click your Yosemite drive then go to System >> Library
    • Open the CoreServices folder
    • Right click SystemAppearance.bundle and choose Show Package Contents
    • Open Content >> Resources
    • Rename “DarkAppearance.car” to “GraphiteAppearance.car”
    • Open System Preference >> General
    • Under Appearance switch from Blue to Graphite
    • Logout and log back in

    Jean-David notes that the dark theme is clearly not finished – hence its omission from the first Yosemite beta. A lot of stuff is missing in the dark interface so only a few controls get the new dark look, while windows and menus keep the default light grey background.
    However, the DarkAppearance.car file is very interesting because it uses the same system as the one used in iOS 7 & 8, which should allow people to build their own “.car” theme files in the future.

    For those wondering about the .CAR files, they contain definitions for the appearance of all UI elements of OS X. According to Jean-David’s research, it looks like they are built by the “distiller” utility Apple added in Mavericks, that can be found in a private framework called “CoreThemeDefinition.”
    Once you’ve had your fill of partial darkness, revert back to the Blue appearance and fix the .car file names to their original state.

    You need iOS on your iPhone for that feature to work

    I don't know if anyone has seen this but there's a simple Terminal command to get it working roughly *apparently including the link marks the post as spam so message me or something it's on Appleinsider*

    Apple unveiled a new “dark mode” for OS X Yosemite during the company’s WWDC keynote earlier this month, but the feature has thus far been absent from the first two developer builds. Today, however, developer Hamza Sood discovered that a partially-functional Dark Mode could be enabled in the second Yosemite beta with a Terminal command.

    To try the feature, head to Terminal on a Mac running OS X Yosemite Beta 2 and enter the following command:
    sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences AppleInterfaceTheme Dark

    This implementation gives developers a peak at the final version of Dark Mode, although in its current form it is incomplete, with several bugs readily apparent. To disable Dark Mode and revert to the default Yosemite color scheme, head back to Terminal and use this command:
    sudo defaults delete /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences AppleInterfaceTheme Dark

    If the above command doesn’t work, try this:
    sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences AppleInterfaceTheme Light

    You’ll need to log out of your user account or reboot your Mac to see the change in either case.

    So anyone finally figured out how to turn on the dark mode? if not, here's an easy way through terminal --> OS X Yosemite's 'Dark Mode' Now Available via Terminal Command - Mac Rumors

    I'm still hoping to see just an easy on off switch somewhere in preferences though :-s.

    What Yosemite has given us is an option for "Dark menu and Dock", which is a setting is System Preferences > General.

    I still prefer the standard mode, but that definitely has a "cool" look to it.

    I really like the look of Yosemite. But I’ve been running in "dark mode" since it appeared back about DP 4 or 5. Little by little, the publishers of the menu bar apps that I run have embraced it and made their menu bar icons compatible. It just looks right to me.

    I was looking forward for the dark mode, but I have to admit that both look amazing! The dark is easier on my eyes though. Nice wallpaper BTW.
