I agree, it's gotten a lot better. And it feels a lot faster too. Or maybe
that's just my new computer.

I'll take the hint and switch to PDF. Heck, maybe I'll switch to Context
too. No promises though. Still, the competition just isn't really getting
past the expl3 phase or years now, while Context's just buzzing with life.
But I digress.

Anyway, maybe it's time. Thanks for Windvi while it lasted, Fabrice! And
thanks to everyone for the parts of TeXLive that are working. 

There's a whole weekend waiting for overfull \hboxes: off to play!

    Adobe's reader is just sooo bulky.

Maybe gsview is better?  Ghostscript text rendering has gone up and down
over the years, but at the moment gv+GPL gs 8.15 does pretty well for me
on Unix.  (With antialiasing and such turned on.)  (I mostly use xpdf,
but that's never been ported to Windows afaik.)
