I fully agree, though I'm not a Windows user. But numerous people
I helped to install TL on Windows complained about this new default
viewer for their `.pdf' files (which is ugly and, the last time
I checked it, has much less features compared to SumatraPDF or even
Acrobat Reader). The default viewer for `.pdf' files should be left

At most, DVIOUT could be the default viewer for `.dvi' and `.eps' files.
