    As most people are aware, Snow Leopard is switching to 2.2 Gamma by default.

    Just out of interest, 1.8 or 2.2?

    Edit: I've always used the system default: 1.8.

    First thing I do is set it to 2.2. Looks better to me, less washed out.

    2.2 looks much crisper and nicer to view for long periods of time. May depend on the screen i guess.

    I have presets for both depending on what I'm doing. 1.8 for text only documents and 2.2 for my graphics work. 2.2 is easier on these old eyes.

    I set it to what looked best when calibrating the screen. It is more than 2.2.
