I guess you find grayscale (8-bit gray) display also annoying?..
 As about me: I use anti-aliasing to make characters looking better.
FreeType (www.freetype.org) project does wonderful things, 255 shades of gray 
for every renderred glyph...
And, adding subpixel decimation (which required digital LCD screen and RGB 
color) can imprrove it even further!
So I can't agree that color is confusing - color makes life better!
