9.7. PostScript Converter

Desktop publishing arrived not with the birth of the Macintosh but soon after with the Apple LaserWriter, the first printer to use Adobe's PostScript page description language, which has became the standard for high-end graphic design applications and the designers, film houses, and print shops who use them.

Even with the advent of PDF, you'll still find such .ps files scattered around the Web.
