comment Reason that most (business) applications have a blue theme?
I'm aware that blue is supposed to be calming, associated with communication etc. I still haven't been able to find ouy why though. Apparently, the cone receptors in the eye detect either red, green or blue. Only about 2% are dedicated to blue - perhaps blue stimulates the eye less therefore is less taxing on the brain, which is why it is the predominate colour for things that people look at for a long time (e.g. a business application).

@Rahul - the purple decision is not based upon the needs of the customers. It is based upon the opinion of my immediate manager (who is not the project owner/manager). Our product is a business application and I only know of 1 application that uses purple as it's main color (Microsoft One Note). 90+% of Windows Applications use blue - that is why it is my preference
