For several years Don Lancaster wrote a column in Computer Shopper extolling
the virtues of PostScript as a programming language. I didn't have the
impression that he was touting the printer as a coprocessor as much as he
was pointing out that since ps qualified as a general purpose programming
language you could do some amazing things with it inside the printer. Not
being heavily into graphics I didn't follow it closely.
He was one of the last people I knew of who was an extreme Mac bigot who
finally threw in the towel quite a few years back. He had gotten a honking
PC of some sort and said somewhat wistfully that his beloved Macs could no
longer do anything the PC couldn't.
