By "the system" I mean "the hardware & OS on which Emacs runs".
For Emacs to be able to print, the system (either the printer or some
part of the software) needs to support Postscript.

Printers that don't understand Postscript are still pretty common,
AFAIK.  And Windows doesn't provide Postscript support for
non-Postscript printers unless you install ghostscript.  So it's
not irrelevant.
