What they have now is anyone's guess. PCs mostly, but
a lot of people have Macs. Some have both, like me.
Haiku will run on PCs first. Macs at some point in the future.
I doubt that many people have properly calibrated systems.

Don't you need special hardware, like this one?

I know color correction is very important, especially in print/
publishing, and I don't mean to be disrespectful, but isn't color
correction closely tied to the operating system rather than to
the hardware itself, these days? (MacOS/Windows vs Mac/PC)

I suppose the same graphics card and monitor would produce
the same colors, being driven by the same OS (Haiku) and
the same device driver, regardless of what the rest of the 
hardware happens to be, or am I missing something?
