The bigger fallacy is the idea that you could guess the display gamma 
by looking at the name of the OS.

I'm writing this on a Mac with roughly 2.2 gamma and I get seriously 
annoyed when some developer (eg. my TV card vendor) decides to apply a 
semi-arbitrary gamma change because the OS is called Mac OS something.
