    Lightbulb Colors

    Those four similar blue shades are really annoying. Can you please use some other more distinguishable colors like yellow, pink, orange, etc. (Gnuplot default colors are quite good example), those may not look as "cool" but make reading the graphs much easier.

    I agree. I cannot distinguish between the colors as they're too similiar. Perhaps the tango colors could work too.

    As explained before, patches for pts_Graph are welcome to improve the color picking algorithm... From a base set of colors, it needs to be able to shift around the color wheel and pick out other X-number of distinct colors. The current algorithm was submitted by a Phoronix reader after he didn't like my previous version, but clearly there are still some flaws with this current implementation.

    As explained before, the color similarity makes these graphs almost useless. What is keeping you from fixing it yourself? You sound like a broken record soliciting the fix from your readers all the time.

    Color algorithms aren't my area of expertise, my color picker had already went through several phases.

    The colors work fine for me just now for figuring out the lines after looking at the averages/low/highs to know where they should be, and none of the commercial customers have complained about line graph colors. So if there are some people who don't like the color and want it changed, and experience with colors, feel free to submit patches since it's open-source.

    Cirrus, Innotek and Matrox?

    Innotek now only makes shock collars and in ground fence-less-fences for dogs, Cirrius hasn't made anything bought by more then 5 people in who knows how long and the last thing Matrox ever produced that anyone ever bought was the Triple Head which was made pretty useless by 6x Eyefinty cards. Sure there was the Parhelia, but it was slow and overpriced compared to the Quadro and FireGL cards it was competing with. Yeah, I know they apparently sold quite a few to run multi-monitor sets usually used in the financial sector if all the demos I've seen always having what appear to be several stock charts on the screens, which would explain a bit of the stupid in the financial sector...
