Indeed. I was remarking on what seems to be a permanent cultural and technological gap between Macs and PCs. In this case case changing output levels to a specific number is simple on a PC but much harder on a Mac.

Like for instance the X-Rite calibrating device I use doesn’t have the option of setting my monitor to a specific output level. The software sets it to whatever the designers thought it should be.

Which doesn’t mean that the display will necessarily actually produce that brightness level.
