Graphics, User Interfaces "The color blindness is the inability to perceive differences between some or all colors that other people can distinguish. According to the medical studies, eight to ten percent of male population suffers from some kind of color blindness (figure for female population is much lower). What does it mean to the average Swing developer? Well, if you rely too much on color differences, you may be not conveying the information as well as you thought. Now you can run your application in debug UI mode and have a live preview of your UI as viewed by the color-blind population."

What exactly is so ugly about this GUI? I think there's nothing wrong with it, except for the color selection, but I guess you know too that there is a reason behind it, right? It would be hard to demonstrate a problem on a monochrome UI...

But anyway, feel free to troll about.
