Default 256 colors???

So what's with Pro Tools needing to have the display set to 256 colors. It's killing me to look at my beautiful new flat panel display with grainy graphics. What kind of performance issues are there? I say to hell with that, I don't care what they say, I'm going with MILLIONS of colors... so there!

256 makes scrolling on my G4/500 far too fast. I bumped the rez to thousands.

Anyone who grew up with Crayola Crayons knows that there simply are NOT that many colors. Basically, you have 64 colors (and the built-in sharpener), but some of the rich kids have 102.

Go millions if you want, but if you start having -6042 errors, fewer colors will help the situation out.
