Feature for yast change console color. And green color for console by
default. I think green is opensuse color. For first console stay white,
for best look boot log.

It's a psychological thing.
A color's brightness × area covered by said color = desired to be
minimal for the background color.
And that happens to be black or blue in most cases; for graphical
feebles white seems to be also acceptable, but staring at a
brightcolored background.. I'm just waiting for everybody to get nuts.
Try it yourself... xterm -bg "#FF00FF".
Everybody knows that. You will find many console applications -
especially from the DOS area - that used blue as a background (in case
they did not use black).

Green can be a hard color for some people to see. It's one of the most
common colors affected by colorblindness. So I'm not sure this would be
a good idea.

I also think green by default would be not a good idea. But a simple
configuration-option in yast would be very nice. So everyone can set
this to a color he likes, I would prefer other colors like this antique
white to black ;)

blindness and it is the color that displays have the hardest time
