...on a Mac.

I think the default gamma setting was changed in PS to more closely match
the default setting for the other 95% of computer users.

I'd be interested in hearing how the images appear in Windows.

Personally, I run my Mac at 2.2 so I can see the world as most others will
see it.

I've long wondered:  does the Mac use the non-standard gamma for an
objectively verifiable benefit, or was this just another Jobs thang?
