I agree that the default text-mode console colors aren't ideal.
Fortunately, in X11 terminals those can easily be changed, however.
For instance I use the following custom resources to specify the colors
to use for xterm and urxvt, in case this can temporarily help
(assuming you like those colors :)
As for the text-mode console, I don't even remember if the default text
mode supports more than 16 colors... surely that framebuffers do,
