In a previous entry, I recommend to use a Windows made monitor profile under Linux if the monitor profiler is not supported in Linux (which is the case for most cheap ones, yet). Today, I stumbled upon this blog entry from Nicolas Vilars who did the following test:
- Making a profile under Windows
- Loading it and testing results for a few color patches
- Loading the same profile under Linux (with xcalib)
- Testing the same patches with sticking the (Windows plugged) colorimeter on the Linux screen
- Comparing the results
All in all the result are very good – most of the differences are less than what a human eye can detect. Check his blog for the details.
