doPDF does the same thing, and acts as a printer. Most Office suites will do it right out of the box now days, and a good deal of applications which require a printed copy can do PDFs.

I also have other software programs on my computer that can convert and print as pdf files. The difference with PDFCreator is that you just print normally, from anywhere. No need to open the file in any other program. This is very handy for printing from your web browser. For example, if you have ever printed in Windows, you have seen Microsoft Fax as one of the "printers" in your print dialog. PDFCreator just adds itself there as one of your available printers.

I've been using PDFCreator on my laptop for a few years. It works very well. Indispensable for printing so many things from the web. Just choose print from your browser's menu, choose PDFCreator as the printer, and you've got an easily-viewed, easily-printed exact copy of it on your hard drive. Never had any pdf file created by PDFCreator than I couldn't open in Adobe Reader, xpdf, etc.
