    But, not every video card reproduces blue in the same way, let
    alone every monitor - somewhere I've got an old CRT monitor where
    blue text was mostly unreadable (_too_dark_). For photo-editing,
    I now use xgamma to get adequately-consistent results on whichever of
    4 machines I'm using (one LCD monitor, with KVM switch) - the
    settings for the individual machines are very different.

    And, of course, people have different colour vision (and unless we
    are labelled as colour-blind, we each regard our colour vision as
    "normal"). So, what is perfectly acceptable for you on specific
    hardware may be totally unusable for someone else.
