Does this really work?  I have never tried it because I figured that 
there would be too many differences from one OS to the next.  Say you 
get the ICC profile under Windows.  You now boot Linux and try to use 
that profile.  The way an image is displayed could be very different.  
You are using video drivers that probably are made for a different OS 
and may not even be from the video card's manufacturer.  Additionally, 
the differing drivers may have different default parameters for display 

As I said, I have never tried this method.  If anyone has had good luck, 
I'd love to hear about it! :-)
