    Microsoft XPS Document Writer (XP Pro SP3)

    Does anyone know of any good reason why one should not delete this printer, about which Microsoft says:

    "The Microsoft XPS Document Writer (MXDW) is a print-to-file driver that enables any Windows XP SP2/2003/Vista application to create XML Paper Specification (XPS) Document files."

    I can't imagine that I would ever want to create XPS files!

    On the one hand, if you never create .XPS files, there is no objection against deleting this printer, AFAIK.

    On the other hand, does it bother you? The format might become more popular in the future, since there is more support for it in Office 2007.
