AFAIK, Tim Thiessen's venerable ghostview 1.5 is not being actively
worked on. However, his code base seems to have been actively mined
for good ideas in successors.

I've been using "gv" 3.5.8 by Johannes Plass successfully for a number
of years on Solaris, although it does not seem to have been updated
much recently. You can find it at

        http://wwwthep.physik.uni-mainz.de/~plass/gv/

The 2 major free desktop systems have been creating PS viewers to wrap
around ghostscript: KDE has kghostview

        http://apps.kde.com/na/2/info/id/497

while Gnome has ggv

        http://www.gnome.org/applist/view.php3?name=ggv

These all work pretty well on Linux. 

If you're stuck on W2K, then you might want to consider GSView (I
haven't used it, so I can't say for certain). However, it looks pretty
good and it appears to be actively maintained.

HTH.
