This you get in most of the dvi viewers

I think that happens w/ the dvi viewers as well (haven't ever run a
Windows system which was quick enough for it to matter).
The problem is, it's a .dvi, you have to install extra things to view
(say) .eps graphics, and it's not pdftex.
Bakoma TeX seems potentially the closest, but it's a time-limited demo
one has to license. Or of course there's Scientific Workplace &c.
There is a recent setup called protext which TUG is looking for testers
for --- it uses texnic center and seems decent enough.
Using LyX seems the best alternative to my mind... the free QT version
for Windows runs pretty much like a Windows app.
