What part of: "...there was no case i found postscript to print faster...You won't on an HP printer, at least not an older one..." is not understandable? Let me repeat - on most HP printers PostScript IS SLOWER BECAUSE HP DESIGNED IT THAT WAY. It is NOT slower because of some inherent issue with PostScript itself. Did you know that Ghostscript is used as the Postscript engine in a number of printers?
