I have known several color blind people who find it aggravating that applications frequently rely on color to convey important information (e.g. red for errors.) If you can't distinguish between colors then the meaning is lost.

Therefore, I think that if you are designing user interfaces it is important to ask the question, how would this look to a color blind user.

As a side note, I find Color schemes generator 2 very help for designing color schemes with purpose in mind.
