i guess that unix has much changed in the last few decades!

if you hadn't touched a computer in all those years you wouldn't recognize both windows nor linux/unix (well, you may recognize a mac, though...).

and you would be given an installed computer with some mainstream linux on it, you would never think it's a unix.

finally, installing linux is probably easier than installing windows... but i agree that there are some configuration steps which are harder. but those get fewer and rarer!

and compiling free software is much easier with linux than with windows. that's life.

i see the problem... no way to choose a color space for the output...i wonder if enabling the color management may solve...

does anybody know if it is possible?
