Most mac users don't know this. Clicking a .ps gives an error. I think it should bring up printer dialog, but I don't work for apple.

I agree with you!

One really cool thing is if you print to .ps printer, then you double
click printer icon, you can drag jobs out of the printer onto desktop. Now
you have converted ANYTHING (paintshop pic, word doc, etc) into a .ps

Exactly! And in Mac OS X, where the printer spool format is PDF (for ALL printers!!), you can do the same thing and then just email the file off to your friends and family!

If you press option while you drag the document icon onto desktop,
the doc will still print and you'll have a .ps copy, too. There were some
really good things about the old mac desktop. Not so good for those of us
who like typing, though.

Another advantage to Mac OS X - the best of both worlds...
