Oh, and by the way, I have a really neat example, which is assembling
composite images for profile comparison:
Usually I convert the same file using profiles A, B, C etc, and then
assemble the composite side by side and print "without CM".

But as I said, I see no reason why people like me should use Linux,
maybe graphics specialists or photographers should just be told
clearly to use a PC and proprietary drivers.
