Simply untrue, and I'll give you a current example as to why you're wrong:

"Purple" Sun -> "Teal" Sun -> "Owww My Eyes Red" Snoracle.

I hated. Hated. HA-TED. the old Sun purple. I felt it was an
undignified color to festoon such capable machines with. I loved,
LOVED the switch to teal under El Ponytail Grande. Now, every time I
mistakenly enter "" into my browser, I find myself wanting
nothing more than to fly to San Jose and somehow, some way, suffocate
Larry Ellison using paper festooned with the hex notation for that
truly awful Oracle Red.

Of course, I may very well be alone in this sentiment.
