I don't know the particular reason for the blue color (suspect it is
history, as others have mentioned), but I do wish that other apps
would allow this option. I set my terminal windows to reverse
type (white on black) when I do a lot of programming or work in text
(HTML, javadoc, etc) and I don't have nearly so many problems with
eyestrain, tiredness, etc as I do with black-on-white.
