Yes. I have a BGR monitor here :-)
90 degrees rotation also invalidates the LCD but it doesn't look as bad
as getting RGB<->BGR wrong
Devices like the i-whatsit and Android ones don't use LCD and I think
that is one reason.
OLED displays don't work well with it either.
Windows is deficient in that it doesn't provide anyway to set LCD on a
and it should. But most about every desktop/laptop is normal rotation
LCD in RGB format.
