In compare with kernel up to 2.6.27 (because I used Ubuntu, Mandriva), 2.6.33 looks:more brighter, may be more contrast, especially white, it is definitely more brighter although I stated xgamma 0.75. But biggest problem is that colors of the picture are not solid, stable - they are somehow blinking or flickering. Sometime I think may be back lights of LCD panel works different. And after hour or two eyes start notice it, it is looks like colors is not constant, they always changes, little bit but they are "playing".

you can take a screenshot with gnome-screenshot. Just install the
program and run it from the command line (or you if have gnome, press
the PrtScr key).
