Agreed about 256-color being a turning point. I remember being amazed by Nextstep's 256 color mode when they ported to PCs. It was an incredible concession for an OS that delayed supporting color until they could "do it right", which to them meant every pixel had 24 bits for RGB plus 8 for alpha. It was great for those of us with modest hardware.
