Both is possible. Doesnt matter in the conclusion: avoid GDI printers
(because there might be no / less good drivers available for Linux) and
don't fear XPS printers (since there will be Linux drivers for those - after
all it's an open specification).

Also note that MS only demands that "premium" devices have an XPS driver,
not that XPS is the only interface to the printer.

Currently, if I were to buy a printer and couldnt afford a PS one, I'd
choose one which understands PCL and has a Linux printer available. For
driver support check out http://www.linuxprinting.org/ (gets forwarded after
a recent merger between OSDL and FSG)
