Black _was_ the new silver, after silver was the new black. But black has been the new silver for too long now to still be the new silver, thus the only thing that can be the new silver is the old black, which is silver. Trust me when I say that next year is the year that silver will again be the new silver (and still not the year of Linux).
PS Although white was briefly the new black (or was it the new silver?), there is no way that the new black will be white any time soon. The new white will just be white, also known as the old white and "not the new black". Don't get me started on gold. It hasn't even been the new white. In fact, I think that is what made the old "new black" the "old black" again and let silver be the "new black".
The same kind of ponce that has matching dining chairs, and who wears shoes of the same colour as each other. My AV kit is a feature in my lounge, and as such, I don't want it looking like the bargain bin corner in Curry's.
(in all seriousness, my OCD levels probably need dialing down a bit - but it wouldn't be OCD then now, would it?)
Choice would be nice though....
