I am red/green colorblind.

This is actually quite common among men.

As a colorblind person, trying to determine what color the colored circles are in the installation checklist (which indicate whether something was successful or not) is futile as I can't discern the difference in color between the circles.

Why not just use checks or X's throghout?

I agree with you and this is actually my fault.  We needed something with three states "Okay/Warning/Fatal or Error" and I didn't think of including any text with it, or doing anything funky with graphics.  I'll rectify this somehow for the 1.0.3 release if I have time, if not it'll be for the release after that.

Fantastic!

If you're looking for suggestions how about using, a checkmark for "OK", an exclamation point graphic for "Warning" and a big X for "Failure"?
