It would be nice if users who are color impaired would be able to change the Font, Graph & Chart colors used in Boinc.

I am color challenged and the default colors for me are very hard to distinguish from one another so and option to pick your colors for the Fonts, Statistics and especially the Disk Usage Pie charts would really be nice.

Sincerely

that request should probably be made on the BOINC board and not SETI.

Let's be realistic. The dev are going to be too busy for the next year getting the scheduler fixed. First they have to do a complete rewrite to get CUDA working properly. Next on the agenda, will probably be OpenCL for other graphics card. Then they will need to get Boinc better at handling other non-CPU intensive projects and multithreaded applications.

I'm afraid that any cosmetic changes to Boinc is very low priority and will only happen if someone hands in the completed code ready to be inserted.
