How many colors are too many colors for Windows Terminal? (microsoft.com)

I'm pretty happy that Microsoft is paying attention to these little things (terminal performance) that have a big impact on developers.

Too bad about the earlier drama.

Yea it's a shame. I feel like all of this could have been avoided with a simple ":P" or "/s" on the original post that sparked the whole controversy. I think we were all really excited about the discussion, but a single off-the-cuff joke got taken the wrong way and well... here we are.

I don’t think that the drama was caused by misunderstood sarcasm.

Less then rainbow should be ok...

Nobody really needs red, do they?

I was talking about the number of colors in the rainbow... but it does have red, doesn't it?

But who needs violet AND indigo?

Certainly not both at the same time!

can't think of a use in the terminal...
