First time I hear about this issue, but I can believe it. Possibly we have now learned why MS does not feature a nice PDF creation button in their product: They would make themselves superflous when you only need a pdf reader on the recipient end.

Otoh I know that people on my department use word files with comments inside of them, which fails in OOo/LO.

They don't have a PDF creation button because they want you to use XPS instead.
The only function of XPS is that it isn't PDF.

Ugh, I hate XPS.

Had an awesome Xenix workstation when I was in high school that was donated to the school and nobody knew what to do with it so I got to play around.
It was an 80186 ...!

I hate XPS so much. And Windows 8 has some newer rendition of XPS that doesn't seem to be compatible with some other versions of windows.

Seriously, is there any value of XPS at all?  It really seemed like Microsoft built it purely out of a sense of not-invented-here.

I came across an xps once and I ignored it. Nobody sane seems to use it. And yes, the NIH seems to be the main purpose. They should offer a NIH reader for all plattforms and shove it down everyones throat, like adobe did in the 90s.

I think they weren't good at making PDF editable when they were coding MS Publisher, and bam XPS was born.

Configuring a Windoze 2012 Server for the first time. There's lots to hate in this version. Once again they moved everything around for no good reason.
Clearly this operating system was designed by Hitler himself.

Seriously, it's a f***ing abortion of an operating system. Administration functions are on three different menu screens with absolutely no coherence to which options go on which screens.

And ... $DEITY forbid you actually want to log out, especially if you're connected through a remote desktop session. You have to somehow know that if you put the mouse pointer in the lower left corner of the screen, there is a quasi-start-menu button that you then have to sharpshoot, and if you manage to do so, the desktop disappears and is replaced by a smartphone-like user interface. On this screen you are given absolutely *no* visual cues to help you figure out that you then have to click on your name to finally be presented with the option to end your session.

The new Windoze 8 user interface was disgusting, stupid, moronic, ugly, unintuitive, and difficult to navigate in the first place.
Mixing parts of it in with an operating system supposedly intended for servers absolutely justifies the gruesome mass-extermination of every single designer and developer who was involved in its creation. It's THAT bad.

It's good to know that there is Hitlers on both sides.

Yes but when this Hitler is being a nazi it is for good unlike those other Hitlers that wanted mass executions.

Isn't it similar to what they use now?

Microsoft already knows what you want to do with your servers.  This is why they hide everything the way they do.

The operating system works best if you install nothing on it, and never log in.  Which, in Microsoft's world, is precisely how their servers should be used.

No network connectivity is tantimount to the security of Windows Servers anyway.

Actually they want you to let your servers sit there, licensed and paid for but idle, while you subscribe to their hosted services and use that instead.

Because ... y'know ... it's in the cloud.
