Visual candy.

Does anyone actually use this type of stuff on a daily basis?

I think the semantic substrates visualization by Shneiderman and Aris is much better than this, and has the same goals. The use of a rainbow colour scheme without any legend makes the colour meaningless here. The help says that red and blue are the endpoints, but remembering that, and mentally ordering the in between colours is quite a challenge for reading at-a-glance.
