Does anyone know of a good, free PostScript document viewer for Windows other than GSView?

Never needed to use it, but the reviews on Open Source Evince look pretty good and PostScript is supported.

If you have Acrobat installed, and have Acrobat Distiller which isnstalled as a separate program with it, you can convert the PostScript file to a PDF

Thanks, however I'm not interested in converting to PDF; I only need to view them.

I really don't understand why Adobe makes a product called Adobe Reader without support for a document format they own and maintain.

Arrrgh.

They support it but you have to purchase Acrobat. The reader is a freebie. You could make this work if you bought Acrobat.

Yeah, it's not that big of a deal. The project I'm working on at work requires me to check PS output from the application I'm developing and the free version of GSView has this annoying popup registration reminder everytime I open a file. Not a big deal but still annoying.

Unless my company is going to pay for a better reader, which I doubt, I can live with it.
