It totally depends on what videocard you are using. My laptop has an ATI 
Rage128 with 8mb, which is not much, so it's filled up completely at startup 
and makes blender crash in millions of colors. 
Maybe blender should check how many VRAM is available and according to that 
show a message to the users whether or not to switch to thousands of colors 
(already discussed in #blendercoders). For now, if one experiences weird 
behaviour under OSX, set the colors to thousands and it will most likely work 
fine (as is explained in the docs).
