I think I started using ghostscript to render to printer on my 20MHz 286 back
in '90 or so... I won't say the exact type of printer I had, but
I used the "eps9high" device :-) . Printing was a tedious, noisy
affair. But I was printing postscript . My setup included emtex,
dvips, ghostscript, pcmatlab, msfortran, qbasic 4.5; it sufficed for most
of my master's thesis :-) . The 286 had 4MB of memory with DIP and
SIP sockets; I bought the parts from Jameco. I could avoid having to
walk to the UW-Madison CAE facility at night when it was 10 below outside...
