Does as it says, though why anyone would use PDF is beyond me.

The world really doesn't need *another* document archival format. Please kill this thing, or guarantee it's better than PDF and make an esy migration tool to XPS and *then* kill PDF.

Rating the PROGRAMME (unlike the gimp below) it does exactly what it says on the tin.

Whether XPS will be a success is neither here nor there.

As for the .doc format being gone, are you blind or stupid? .doc is still easily the most popular because it is the easiest to get hold of.

To the guy above: it does pdf too, so the programme itself is quite handy, and therefore not worthy of a 2.

XPS is - as many other "revolutionary standards" from Microsoft - a useless format that will never become a standard. To become one, it has to be open source, or its license should be less restrictive.

Presented as a PDF killer, XPS will never replace PDF, who's truely available on all platforms, wide spread, well known and loved by all kind of users (from printers and DTP workers to businessmen and students.)

This add-in itself isn't very needed since there are several PDF generators that give the possibility to generate PDFs from almost any print capable application. Among these PDF generators is PDFCreator, an open source PDF printer of great quality.

Even MSOffice isn't a "must have" (for the common user) as there are several free replacements, from google's Writely to OpenOffice and Abiword.

The times when Microsoft was creating standards when it wanted and how it wanted are gone.
Doc format is dead (its death is called "OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenDocument), an XML-based open standard that spreads fast among applications and platforms. ).

So will die XPS.

Amen... :)
