I found that it is rather impossible to fathom all the crappy monitors and
amount of people unable to set up a proper gamma out there. I develop my
designs on a 19" samsung tft at home and I don't see much difference to
the CRT at work. From an accessibility POV I found that working on my
laptop made me realise how bad some contrasts are :-)
