No thanks. Blue is a corporate color. I got sick of if already. 
When I see blue I want to go to bed and sleep instead of doing 
work. And blue is not good for health of my eyes, because energy 
of blue light is higher that other color (by law of physics). So 
your eyes got more `radiation` and get tired quicker. I  I would 
agree to green or orange, but no `shades of blue`, please...
I like red color. Let it be as it is. Red light has lowest energy 
in visible spectre, so it is good for eyes. I often switch my 
text editor to red color theme. And it works well, because I want 
to sleep less and my eyes are not so tired.
