    I like to think that that saber colors are like belt colors in martial arts.

    Blue is for affirmed Jedi knights.
    Green are for Masters.
    Purple is for Grand Sword Masters.

    In keeping with that, I'd figure Obi-Wan never graduated to Green cause of sentimental feelings and perhaps a sense of personal failure, believing that he wasn't worthy to sport a green blase.

    Since Yoda is apparently a better swordsman then Windu I'd think that Yoda's ego wasn't at stake and simply wanted to stay with traditional green.

    As much as that would make the most sense it has been disproven many times any way you look at it

    On the same topic but not entirely related, I noticed that the Zabrak Jedi Master has a red lightsaber.

    I was actually trying to figure this out. I know for a fact that either Eeth Koth or Agen Kolar had a crimson/red lightsaber at some point in the comics or something (both are Zabrak and I believe who you are speaking of) just wondering where you are getting your info from. I'd like to find the comic it was in. It has been driving me nuts I can't find the comic or the source I saw it in.

    I remember an interview with either Lucas or SLJ where it was said that saber is purple so that as the main commander on a field full of Jedi's weilding blue and green sabers that it would be easier to follow him and his orders mid battle.

    Which you must admit make perfect sense
