I never could get used to pdfopen/pdfclose (although I'll give the --back
variant a try). PDF does look far better than DVI. But the
debug/tex/proofread-cycle just doesn't really fit. Adobe's reader is just
GhostScript had serious text rendering issues which strangely enough Windvi
never had, even though it uses GhostScript to prerender the fonts--go

enough in pdf mode. I see someone modified it to have a --back option:
And just to mention for the record, Taco made the same thing work for Unix:
