Apple Troll!  :)  Apple could do 7 colors to CGA's 4, true.  

Rant:  I have no idea why people prefered the cyan-magenta-white CGA palette so
much... probably because they didn't know they could change it, or maybe
because white and black (the default background color) made people feel safe. 
I've seen some CGA games that are halfway decent in terms of color; King's
Quest was one of the few games to use the hideous red-green-yellow palette
well, because they coupled it with a blue background, and red/yellow/green/blue
can be combined in tons of useful ways with dithering.
