It's a psychological thing.

A color's brightness × area covered by said color = desired to be minimal for the background color.

And that happens to be black or blue in most cases; for graphical feebles white seems to be also acceptable, but staring at a brightcolored background.. I'm just waiting for everybody to get nuts.

Try it yourself... xterm -bg "#FF00FF".

Everybody knows that. You will find many console applications - especially from the DOS area - that used blue as a background (in case they did not use black).

Green can be a hard color for some people to see. It's one of the most common colors affected by colorblindness. So I'm not sure this would be a good idea.

I also think green by default would be not a good idea. But a simple configuration-option in yast would be very nice. So everyone can set this to a color he likes, I would prefer other colors like this antique white to black ;)
