I didn't test it seriously but, on first opening, its window
is about 1 inch square. One file I viewed showed the page
sideways upon opening. Gsview displayed it properly. Gsview
is also more than just a viewer. Perhaps psview has similar
capabilities, but I don't see any need to learn it.

Things may be different in the non-windows version.

Also gsview is orthogonal to TeXLive. Psview ceased to
work when I removed the TexLive 2008 bin directory from
the path.
