Not using of syntax highlighting

About a month ago I turned off syntax highlighting in vim. And it turns out that syntax highlighting does not matter. The code has not lost any readability. Moreover, nothing distracts me and I can concentrate on the code, not on the highlighting. So bravely remove or comment out the following lines from your .vimrc:
"if &t_Co > 2 || has("gui_running")
  " syntax on
  " set hlsearch
or just
syntax off
set bg=dark
If you want your gvim looking like vim in a terminal, try xterm16 colorscheme.
if has("gui_running")
    colo xterm16
