Assuming you mostly work with PostScript printers and PDFs, if you set
the system default printer to Adobe PDF / Acrobat, you should be fine.

The problem is that some printers have their own embedded fonts that
are different than the system's fonts or the system's versions of
those fonts. They aren't part of the Windows system, but they can be
accessed on the printer. If the font appears to be available to the
system as a remote resource, it'll use it. But it can't be embedded in
a PDF, for instance, and won't travel with the file to another system
that doesn't use that printer.
