It requires a massive distortion of reality and denial to come up with something this overly complicated that has consistently not worked for every single party involved: Apple, Adobe, HP, Epson, Canon, and all of their users have had nothing but problems with this scheme since it hatched, and was predicted it would be a huge problem, in advance, by 1/2 dozen people when the egg was laid, including yours truly

Most of the color management photographers depend on is based on the work Adobe has done. And that functionality is the same on Mac OS and Windows. If those Adobe apps were on Linux, I would expect it would function in a similar manner except easier for Adobe because there's nothing they'd have to either opt-in or opt-out of except their own stuff.
