monica is an visual adjustment tool. Gamma corrections are a basic 
step to achieve a good basic behaviour of your displaying device. Anyway 
it is no substitution to a profiling application with a calibration 

The lack of fine grained control over linearisation and no information 
about monitor primaries make such tools not very valuable for relyable 
work in DTP.

Even though it is nice to play with.
