In the new GUI Interface - red and greens are not seen well by color blind people
Statistically speaking "color blindness (color vision deficiency, or CVD) affects approximately 1 in 12 men (8%) and 1 in 200 women in the world."
The most common colors these people have problems with are red and green.
I would suggest that the new GUI avoid using those colors for the "power off", "log out" or "shut down" buttons.
Also, if red, or green, is used in a pie chart use a texture in the graphics so that if someone is colorblind they can still read the info.

- Status changed from Screened to Ready For Release
This has become our mantra. We've done away with red/green as state indicators.
We use only one color that gets "muted" - the state indicator's color appears a few shades dimmer/darker when state is STOPPED/NOT RUNNING
