Huh? No problems with the latter one here; by now, I only start the
Adobe reader for presentations on my Mac (Leopard). Preview is just
/way/ faster.

On the other hand, I have a printer employing built-in PostScript
support (which I, by the way, really recommend for anyone not using
Windows exclusively; though you sometimes have to wait for complicated
vector drawings, unless you're investing a good amount of money).
But also the on-screen rendering of both PDF and PostScript looks
absolutely fine even at extreme zoom levels---lines and rounded boxes as
well as fonts---, so it might be a problem with your printer driver on Mac?
