  • 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.

    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.
    I like to beat up pacifists, because they don't fight back ...

    N.A.N.K.A. "We Kick Because We Care."

      I personally know several seasoned designers that have offered advice to me and other upcoming designers. It is a thing.

      Hi Tanner. I was in the Navy with a similar story. Graphic art was always my first love. But instead of freelancing while I was enlisted, I was working on personal fine art illustrations. I made the transition...

      Illustrator is particularly stupid about its link situation. When Indesign opens it will at least give you a low rez image place saver and a prompt telling you the links are missing. With Illustrator,...
