IntelliJ colors

Hi IntelliJ developers,

I've been using Eclipse mostly the last couple of weeks, but I'm now 
switching back to IntelliJ again... be I have a stupid request: could you 
stop using the grey graphics, and go back to the color IntelliJ should be: 
blue(-ish)??

Personally, I think the grey/black colors are sort of depressing. I know 
it's a non-issue, but it really has some effect on me, how stupid it may 
sound. As a matter of fact, I'm currently hacking up the jars to get the 
7.0 picture back in 8.0, to see if I can get the more colorful images 
back. Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way, but the startup logo, and 
the 'banner' on top (and the images in the wizard) should (IMO) really get 
their colorful look back.

Erik,

How about couple of beers  that should cheer you up :)
(sorry could not pass the opportunity for a stupid comment)

I am personally fine with current colors. I prefer quiet palette - easier
for eyes

Well, if IntelliJ would come with some beers included, I certainly 
wouldn't complain! (or maybe about other things...)

Check. Nice to hear a different opinion. I was wondering how other people 
felt about it, so this brings the score to 1-1 ;)
