(Did I throw out the receipt? Whatever the reason it might have been, there goes $20.)
I've noticed that setting the gamma to be one big notch lower in Windows from the default middle setting seems to make it match 2.2 in OS X's Display Calibration Assistant.
I think the very top is 1.0; the middle is 1.8; and the "click any part of the slider below the selector once" be 2.2. (Clicking it twice gave me crushed blacks on the wallpaper, unlike how it looked in OS X.)
I'm in no hurry. I'll download it at work on Saturday to save myself 4GB of download quota. Then I'll either try it on an external HDD or swap my HDD for a test run. There are a few things that I'm interested in, but also a bunch of features I don't care for.
I guess I prefer doing some things the old way in the end, since I don't want to somehow get myself stuck for the times where I'm on someone else's Windows laptop.
I also left most, if not all of OS X's native gestures on, by the way.
Seems like Safari is made so that they could tick the "have browser" check box.
I'm now a very happy OS X user. No more spinning beach balls of doom, huh? (Safari likes to hang.)
I've always wondered whether gaming a long time with anemic GPUs (PS1 > GeForce 2 MX > Radeon 9250 > Radeon Xpress 1100 > DS) meant that I'm very tolerant to bad graphics and frame rate. My first real top-of-the-line GPU was a GeForce 9800 GTX+. xD It certainly meant smoking the spec sheets back then! For some reason, I also got something with a nonstandard design - most 9800s are dual-slot, while mine is single-slot. 60 FPS was awesome!
