But yeah, I get what you want. But instead of changing the colors there should be another client people like you can use. A colorblind client. Where you have no disadvantage at all and can understand everything just like we color see'ing people can (I thought it was a fun word
Anyhow, I'm just interested. If you can see the different between green and blue, why can't you see the difference of green and red? Is blue darker for you than red is or woot? Are you just half colorblind or? =< Sorry if it's personal ^^
A normal person has 3 'tools' or receptors to see colours with, which send a signal to your brains depending on the colour that falls on these. With the superposition of those 3 signals, your brain forms a colour you can see. Now he difference with colour blind people is in such a way that they only have 2 of those receptors. There are various forms of colourblindness which means it differs which of those is missing.
When one of them lacks, your signal to your brain consists of only 2 streams. Now this means that if your receptor that is active in the red part of the spectrum is missing, you won't be able to recognise that colour at all. This means that green<->red, but he can still recognise blue normally as that part of the spectrum your eyes got the receptors for still.
