Not sure if it was an idea behind it but one obvious advantage of having
different kinds of tools use different colors is that it makes it much
easier finding them when you have a whole stack of overlapping windows
to dig around in - (which btw is a very common Smalltalk "disease" since
we have too many shortcuts that spawn new windows). For example,
something pink sticking out there? Aha, a debugger.
yes, of course. i meant to ask, if certain colors do have specific meanings?
