for BIOS' I have seen them mature from when we had to use jumpers on the K6/Pentium (CMOS) that shared the same socket. to the newer UEFI bios' that are in use today. I personally like the UEFI over the traditional BIOS' screens as it is a little easier to read, I will have to say I feel the navigating is a bit more smoother and less cumbersome (this my own personal opinion) and we can take screen shots of the UEFI directly from the UEFI interface.
And when it came to video cards, Nvidia had the Green (hence the green team) and ATI used red (hence the red team) nowadays it is all black, or black, with more black, with a bit a blue in for good measure for PCB colors. Just black is getting so freaking boring.
Is in a state of flux....
