Using Windows made monitor profiles in Linux?

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.
