having the hardware is the best way to calibrate your device. I am concerned about it only because the colors will be used in print as well as on the web. As far as monitors go, it will be a myriad of different calibrations, you are right. Color is better on a Mac, because they are natively calibrated towards a more realistic representation — but that just with windows defaults, OEM's calibrate their monitors any way they want, I suspect that a lot of windows installs have better-than-default settings nowadays. Profiles usually ship with the device, but nothing beats a hardware calibrator (a must for anyone in the creative world, print or otherwise).
(as a note, it's more difficult to respond to top-posted threads) Didn't Jorge put together a color chart for the "official" haiku colors some time ago? Shouldn't these same colors be used when making other Haiku-related imagery? http://haiku-os.org/files/downloads/2007-03-20_haiku-color-palette.png - Urias
