    I was just poking around in Activity Monitor while removing Microsoft AU Daemon (the MS Office auto-updater process), and saw that the only other PowerPC process there was something called XPSLauncher. I can't find any information on the internet for it - does anyone know what it does and where it comes from?

    Something from Xerox

    Looks like it's a supporting daemon for a Xerox printer. In Terminal:

    % locate XPSLauncher
    /Applications/Xerox/PrintingScout/XPSLauncher.app

    I don't see any universal binary versions of the particular Xerox stuff that I've got. Might just be stuck with it.
