My recollection is that early Windows versions Windows/286, Win3.0, etc.
indeed had rather poor or non-existent standard postscript support. But
even back around 1990, you could easily enough obtain Windows PS drivers
from the makers of PS printers. At least as early as 1991, I was using
PS drivers on Windows, then using a commercial postscript-interpreter
program called "GoScript" (before Ghostscript was around) to send the
output to dot-matrix printers.
