PS4 is running very nicely in production environments, especially with the Enteprise version there are great enhancements. "Universal" Printing is much better but not perfect, build a new farm instead of trying to somehow make the upgrade work........... Steve Greenberg Thin Client Computing 34522 N.

How far have things come? If stability is my number one priority should I stick with XP FR3? Also the real attraction for our company would be the apparent ease with which printing in theory is dealt with by MPS 4 - how much has this proven true in practice for others? Also I assume the upgrade path from XP3 to MPS4 is not smooth and possibly not even an option from what I recall reading on the topic last spring? Probably need to be on PS 3 to upgrade to 4?
