"The driver is being used!" wails Server 2008.
"No, it's not, there are no printers installed, I deleted them all"
"But it was used before! What if you need it again!"
"That's the damn point, your print server role sucks, and HP is worse, I have to get all these garbage drivers off here."
"NOOOOO! How can I allow you to delete vital system information?"
"BECAUSE I'M THE FUCKING ADMIN YOU FUCKING STUPID COMPUTER!"
"Hey, Listen", says Google. "You can go into the registry and delete some old entries related to the spooler, because apparently Server 2008 remembers every printer, redirected or otherwise, that has ever connected to it!" Hey that's stupid but great...except it doesn't work. They're all cleaned out, I still can't delete the printers.
"Hey, Listen", says Google. "You can delete a driver if you manage to do it with 1 second of restarting the Print Spooler!" Well isn't that helpful. Now I just have to do this 30 fucking times.
Goddammit Microsoft, WTF? This is the kind of shit I expect from Windows XP, but not your fucking server product. Was print server such a fucking embarrassment that you had to go and completely cock it up? Motherfucker, all I wanted to do is not have to make printer changes to five different terminal servers, but this shit-pile of a Role is making that seem like the attractive choice.
