I used ps (in favour of pdf) whenever I can get away with it. Especially if I am the consumer of the data and can decide which format somebody else prepares for me. E.g. when downloading scientific paper there's often a .ps version.

I wouldn't want to force other people (especially non-geeks) to learn about data formats they don't care about. And after all a pdf is still better than MS Word.
