Looks like digital photographer types should avoid Vista.
Feb 15, 2007

Below is a quote by the Chromix folks lifted from the Chromix Colornews, Issue #26 (14Feb2007); this is their summary statement.

"WCS has the makings of a very capable color management system. It seems to be able to fit into traditional ICC-based workflows and then quickly flip into WCS mode for some of its newer features and capabilities. The architecture certainly has a future. It's the present I am concerned with primarily. Due to Vista's non-handling and mishandling of graphics card calibration curves it is next to impossible for a professional user to be confident that their system is properly calibrated and displaying color correctly. For this reason I do not recommend Vista for professional workflows at this time. When Microsoft addresses the calibration-clobbering bug in a future service pack then I think Vista will make an effective platform for high quality color production."

Has anybody achieved "guaranteed, no doubt about it" color management success using Vista?
