How To Open an .eps Files In Linux and Windows
EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) files. These are self-contained PostScript files which contain the same mathematical descriptions as the vector files they are made from. Even bitmaps can be saved in the EPS file format. EPS files are supported by most all graphics applications. It is the most portable format for this reason. It is best to use EPS files for all line art and illustrations because they can be reproduced at any size or resolution and still display exactly as they were drawn. Use them wherever native vector files cannot be used.
Eps files are generally only used by graphic professionals, as a result any professional graphic illustrating software can open these files.
CorelDraw - Windows
Adobe Illustrator - Windows/Mac
If however you just want to view the contents of the file with out editing, I believe Adobe Acrobat Reader can do the trick.
Open Acrobat, on the file menu choose file/open. Set 'files of type' to 'All files', then browse to and select your EPS file. this should work.
Also I just found that 3m has an online EPS file view ( not sure why ). here is the link http://promote.3m.com/eps_viewer/index.jsp
