Keith Cronin wondered: But why, then, does a 500K PDF take WAYYYY longer to print than a 1.5MB
Word doc? I've always found this to be the case, particularly if the PDF
has many graphics, regardless of file size.

Sean Brierley responded: Printer drivers. The HP 5000 I have at home and the Canons around here
don't discriminate against PDF. An aging Lexmark we have does.

my $0.02: If your printer has a PostScript driver it will print PDFs faster because PS is a PDF's native language -- no conversion required.
