Hi all,

Is there any quality difference in the final pdf file if it is 
generated using latex followed by dvips and finally ps2pdf
when compared to using pdflatex directly. I personally find
the pdf files generated using pdftex to be sharper. I havn't 
compared the printed versions, so am not sure of the final print
quality. If there is no difference, what would have been the 
motivation to write the pdflatex program?
