    And it's still getting suggestions to use WordPress, even though that's roughly akin to suggesting driving school for someone wanting to learn automotive engineering.

    The best software for the job is dependent on what you're intending to do with it. And whether or not it prints well depends on how you've used that software.

  • Vista and XPS

    First off, I just found this and know nothing about it, but thought it would be an interesting article to pass along.

    http://www.globalgraphics.com/xps/xps_wp.pdf

    Microsoft is at war with everyone:
    origamiproject vs. ipod
    unreleased super search engine vs Google

    and now XPS vs PDF

    Ironically, the article is in pdf format.
    You don't know what you don't know.

    The real question is, what's wrong with PDF? My guess is the only reason MS is producing this XPS format is becasue 1) licensing PDF export capability is costly, 2) MS thrives on taking something that already works well (PDF) and breaking it or 3) MS wants to once again monopolize the business.

    By making XPS free and part of windows we'll start seeing PDFs become "less standard" ... ugh.

    Why does Microsoft suck? God I'd love to kick Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates square in the nuts.
