Default which color space: Adobe or RGB?

should I need to worry about this setting? what is-it used for?

Visually I don't see any difference

Leave it on RGB. Web supports RGB and not Adobe and most places you get prints made support RGB and not Adobe. Adobe has a wider gamut of colors but given the above restrictions it just doesn't make sense for most people.

JohnG is correct (as usual). For very high-end fine art prints, Adobe is the better color space. But for viewing on a monitor and for "everyday" printing, RGB will provide better results. I've had many vary nice prints done by several on-line photo printing services, and I've always used RGB. I'm sure those who display prints at exclusive art galleries use the Adobe color space (and use very sophisticated printers), but those folks are in a different league from the rest of us.
