I opened one of my Nikon RAW .nef files in 4 different programs: Darktable, Lightzone, Nikon NX-D and Rawtherapee.

When looking at the previews on each program, they are all different! The sea in the image looks blue for some programs and green for others. Some of the cloud is brighter in some programs. The sky is different shades of blue. The shape of cloud is less well defined in some programs.

This is before making any changes.

What gives?

And not just that, if you process a file in DxO Photolab and send it as a DNG to Photoshop, you'll find that the colours have changed in that too, even though you probably thought you were sending over the file you processed just as it looked on screen.
