I recently got a new computer with Windows 7. I'm using it and my old computer with WinXP at the same time, with the same monitor, until I feel confident in moving 100% to the new machine. (Okay, really, it's until I feel like I have a grasp of Windows 7's idiotic permissions, levels, etc. I can't really trust a computer that tells me I don't have permission to access & delete my own files!) Anyway, I've just realized that each of the computers gives me different results with the one monitor. I should have known it, of course, but I just never thought about it. I had previously done "eyeball" calibration on the XP machine using a web site I found, and I just finished Windows 7's built-in calibration, and of course that screwed up what I had done with the Win XP machine. So when I compared the same photo viewed on each of the machines, it was quite different on each of them.
So my question is, when I get a monitor calibrator, if I run it on both machines with the same monitor, should I expect to then get identical display results from both machines?
Thanks a lot.
