I wouldn't mind the color personally, if I could still see the errors when
something doesn't work--and once again I could turn it off if I didn't
have (or didn't want) color.

Every company complaining about Microsoft's business practices is simply a
rose bush. They look lovely and smell nice. Once a lucky company dethrones
Microsoft they will shed their petals to expose the thorns underneath. A
thorn by any other name would hurt as much.
