When I've purchased mud, green top=white, and my light blue top= off white, almost a grayish tint.

i have not bought a box of taping mud since november. i've been using exclusively synko all purpose for taping and coating. i've also been fixing a lot more bubbles and edge cracks since then too. i've only been doing this because i got sick of carrying around so many different types of mud. thinking of going back to using taping mud again. has anyone else noticed this? i have also been wondering about all you bazooka tapers out there that run the bigger angle head first and then finish with the smaller head. do you still use taping mud for the angles when laying tapes? wouldn't that cause a problem when sanding? that method seems to me like it would require using all purpose for taping.
I've heard they started using less glue in the all purpose

There are drywall "pros" here in Arkansas that use tile grout mixed with mud on the first coat over tape. No cracking and it seems to work ok.
