Follow-up Comment #29, bug #57658 (project octave):

That change would only affect the command window of the GUI on Windows. 

Some background: There are 16 colors a terminal can use. Programs (like gcc or
make) select the colors by their index. The terminal "decides" which colors it
wants to use for which index.
The mapping from index to color is hard-coded and cannot be changed by the
user. Even if that could be changed, I'd like to leave it that way. However, a
user could manually select a color index (foreground and background) with a
command like:
system ("color F0")

The color palette we are currently using seems to be set up for a dark
background, i.e. the higher color indices that are usually chosen as the
foreground color are quite bright.
Since we are using a white background in the command window, I'd like to
propose changing the color palette to have the darker shades of the same
colors at the higher indices.
