I see poorly calibrated monitors.
Does F.Lux implement the color temperature in software, or does it have an option to use the DDC/DCI channel to physically set your monitor's temperature?
I do have my monitor correctly calibrated... Here is a snip from where I 1st heard about it; it explains the reasoning behind the red tint.
"If you’re not familiar with F.lux you probably don’t know what Redshift does. Essentially this application will, as it gets darker outside, alter your computer’s display and give everything a red tinge. There’s a reason for that. The type of lighting that is around you changes as it gets darker outside. Sunlight is very white, but artificial lighting tends to be more red. As such, if you read something on a piece of paper it will look white to your eyes during the day and reddish at night.
You don’t notice this because your brain automatically balances the difference. Your computer monitor, being backlit, is constantly white. Because of this, looking at your computer at night can hurt your eyes and cause you to lose sleep. Redshift helps offset this."
