Well, not quite because the printer route to a pdf takes information from the printer set up in terms of paper size, orientation and indeed sometimes whether it is converted to RGB or CMYK etc whereas the export function doesn't.
ie not always the same result and sometimes more steps if the default printer set up requires changing.
This is a silly argument; why are we having it? I simply pointed out an alternative approach to the same end. It might (I dont know) even be more universal than merely Microsoft products. Some people might find it easier to use. That’s all.

It’s an educational discussion as we had strayed into how best to create a pdf for printing. A pdf from the print function is not necessarily the same as one from a dedicated export or save as function. These things can matter and when correct printing is required or if the pdf requires a certain format it matters even more. 

It is neither silly nor is it an argument mon brave.

To be honest my poster is that S--T whatever it is printed in does not matter so long as people can read the text . Wish I could do somehting better but to be honest more conerned I have all the right leads and spare.

I'll tweak it for you if you want
Thanks Paul but as they say you cannot make silk purse out of a Sows Ear . I would have said you cannot polish a Turd but I now know this not correct you can in fact get it polished to a mirror finish as proved on Myth Busters.

Sadly Lurch when polished it is in fact very hard indeed so unless you roll it in adhesive first any glitter will fall off a bit like when it is applied to my beard.

Come on, Andrew, play the game. Send me or Paul your sow's ear of a poster and let one of us do our best so that Nick can print you a silk purse...

Andrew, I have a new pack, shout me in room 117
Remind us, Andrew, what exactly does your butler do? Or have you given him the day off? So Nick will print your poster, Paul will give you the blutac and I'll bring you some speaker cable; do you want us to find another wammer to turn your sheets down and put a little point on your toilet paper? ;)
