Our existing farm of Windows 2003 / Presentation Server 4 had quite a few 
issues with Printing.  Large PDF spool sizes, Print Spooler crashes etc with 
both Native Drivers and Citrix Universal Driver.  Im looking at upgrading to  
Windows 2008 / XenApp 5 (64 bit) and was wondering if anyone is running it and 
whether Windows 2008 Printer Improvements are sufficient to make Printing 
reliable once and for all without having to buy a third party product.

I know third party Products such as Tricerat ScrewDrivers support the latest 
Citrix/Windows versions but are they really needed?  Has anyone seen a matrix 
that compares Printer functionality between Windows 2008/XenApp 5 and 

Id love to hear your experiences with Printing if your running Windows 2008 / 


Net yourself a bargain. Find great deals on eBay.
