Actually, you *can* pick any color you see.  You have to mouse-down in the picker first, then you move the cursor, mouse still down, anywhere you care, to "pick up" any desired color anywhere.

Which is not to say that I don't marginally prefer the original tiny modal picker as the default, just because there are so few steps and so little clutter -- and because all our property-sheets are so clunky-looking.

Hoping we can hear some more voices on this subject…
