I actually like it, as a PC user. I have it turn from green to red based on the battery life while it is discharging, and from red to blue while it is charging. Then it turns teal to signify "fully charged". This gives me a very good idea of how much battery life I have left and how much charge time I have left. If I'm too concerned about it draining my battery too quickly (which so far hasn't been enough of a problem) I can always make the colors dimmer.
