    XPS is Microsoft's alternative to PDF.

    XML Paper Specification - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia And the XPS viewer is the app to view those documents.

    Microsoft XPS is considered as a direct competitor to Adobe PostScript and PDF.

    The usage of the XPS viewer is similar to the PDF viewer.

    It is already installed by default in Office 12 & Vista; and integrated into Internet Explorer.

    Download :Microsoft.

    XPS is itself a format, and thats what it will be able to view. You create XPS documents via the XPS file printer.

    It's main benefit is that it is integrated into Windows. This page explains it better than I could: What is XPS? The New Electronic Paper Format.

    I've found that XPS is usually smaller in size than PDF.

    Microsoft has decided to place XPS viewer as seprate app...and its wise move...in Win7, there is XPS Viewer.... So no more IE hangs w/ XPS files.
