HA! Love the pilots here...

"I don't want efficient, quick delivery of my critical information"
"I don't want flashing colors or audio prompts to alert me of a condition"
"I don't want increased situational awareness"
"All this info makes it look like a video game"

Who here has actually flown full scale? I have few hundred hour myself (PP/IR) and I want all those things. It's not a video game when your life is in your own hands. Spend a few minutes in front of a glass-cockpit. You'll see we already have all this "clutter" in the our cockpits. I'm sure Garmin has spent their fair share of $$ on design and layout of their glass systems. When you're flying IMC solo you need to be able to glance at your screen and quickly ascertain your situation and stay ahead of the airplane. COLOR has alot to do with the human eye easily making out displayed objects.
