Recently the default color theme of Konsole was changed to "Dark Pastels". I think the new default theme is not appropriate because is has very low contrasts - both light and color contrasts. In particular, the default text color is light gray and the default background is dark gray. The intensity of colors is also lowered. The lack of contrast is even more apparent because of the gray window border.
I think the previous "Linux Colors" theme is more appropriate for being a default one because it has greater contrast and fits in the default KDE style more nicely.
