For the old text only based systems, documents could be printed with just a 'Postscript' capable laser printer...
    Postscript is indispensable for production needs. I don't know how people would be able to proof their documents without it. I can see someone's argument for Flashpaper for casual document viewing on the web, but people don't realize how powerful the PDF format, coupled with Acrobat Pro/Distiller really is. In the print industry, you will never see anyone use anything else. The two main reasons are the Postscript abilities of PDF and the ability to embed fonts and link images. Flashpaper rasterizes the content.

    Also, PDF is backwards compatible, while Flashpaper requires Flashplayer 6 or greater.
