Right. Very nice if we can trust the virtual machine at least getting
things right, gives some chance for people to test anything. Except...
that's a question of what kind of hardware the virtual machine
emulates. The display device defines what endianess it uses on
framebuffers, not the CPU, right?

Ooh, yeah, that's definitely bonkers.

Maybe the 100% blue things are supposed to be a transparent blended
overlays, like highlights.

The icons look somehow... not completely right to me. Somehow washed

Opaque gray shades are hard to tell right from wrong.

gnome-terminal and the wallpaper look right, but those might be the
only things.

Having a compositing manager complicates things.
