Microsoft: Longhorn Beta 3 and the UPD "Easy Print"

Longhorn (Terminal) Server will have its own "universal printer" functionality. It should be available (I have not checked it) in the Beta 3 Longhorn Server version (released & available for download NOW).

Microsoft calls it: Easy Print. It's based on the Microsoft XPS document standard (which is similar to PDF). The "Easy Print" feature of Longhorn server is quite comprehensive though and is more than just a universal print driver in that it:

  • Supports (nearly) every printer 
  • Compresses the data stream send to the TS Client 
  • Enables you to use the properties (UI) of the native printer driver 
  • Allow you to specify which printer gets redirected into your Longhorn TS Session

Tnx to for the info
