Hmm ... maybe this depends on the country where u bought the cube(s).
I recall from the heydays that here in Norway almost every cube from
Ideal/Arxon had the color arrangement mentioned by me earlier. Other
varieties of the cube(s) were quite rare here. So this is the colors
i'm used to, and i would never buy a cube in any other "colorometry",
at least not for speedcubing :-) I know for sure other colors would
slow down my solving tremendously. I dun believe anyone can solve a
cube equally fast regardless of the "colorometry". If they can i
would say they have exceptional skills :-)
Maybe we let the experts/collectors here comment on this...
