Convert .eps vector graphic to .pdf for editing in Inkscape

I bought an .eps vector graphic file from iStock and wanted to edit the elements for a company logo. I was going to do this on a Windows 7 system using Inkscape.

1) Install Ghostscript.
2) Install GSView.
3) Run GSView and open the .eps file.
4) Under File -> Convert..., select 'pdfwrite' Device and save with a .pdf extension.
5) Run Inkscape and open the .pdf file.
6) Save as a .svg file, ungroup and edit away!
