Assuming I use it to calibrate the monitor, how would the results 
compare with what I obtain by using the gamma correction wizard provided 
with the NVidia drivers on Windows? (Display Optimization Wizard / 
Optimize Gamma / drag the RGB sliders)
It seems like Monica and the NVidia wizard work almost exactly the same.

In the past, I tried to obtain the answer to a simple question, but 
nobody seems to know how to do it:
Let's say I've a dual boot machine and on Windows I use the NVidia 
wizard to configure the monitor. Then, how do I transfer the individual 
RGB gamma settings to Linux? (assuming I'm using the NVidia drivers on 
both Windows and Linux)
This is due to the lack of a wizard in the NVidia Linux drivers, which 
is almost acceptable if I could use the wizard on Windows then just 
transfer the settings to Linux manually.
