I have a task of scanning ~2000 slides ahead of me and while waiting for
my Epson V700 to arrive I wanted to put my old CRT in shape.

After discovering there are some colorimeters which are supported under
Linux, I bought Spyder2 (there is no Huey here, and Huey Pro costs twice
more), but I opened ticket at Datacolor expressing dissatisfaction for
not supporting Linux/Spyder3 and stating that support in Argyll was the
main reason for my purchase.

However, I'll soon have to think about getting a new LCD monitor
(they're not selling CRTs here any longer) and I'm looking for some
advice (pls. don't advice about LaCie & co.) suitable for use with
cinepaint/gimp/cinelerra work (Samsung brand is nicely supported here)
which can be nicely calibrated/profiled with Argyll?

Am I right assuming that Argyll gives better results than lprof?
