Interesting tag line. =^)
Anyway, the number of colors the human eye can see is important.
Medical X-rays are sent as 12 bit grey scale images and a small
company called Silicon Graphics determined that for a monitor to
deispaly colors to the human eye properly, you'd need a 36 bit
RGB signal. That doesn't invalidate the fact that the human eye
sees 8 million to 10 million colors, I just means that you need
a 24 bit to 36 bit conversion table for the ADCs.
