Besides what others have contributed:
According to what I know and have experienced,
pdf files made from dvi files look very bad and are
not searchable. It is better to use pdftex/pdfetex/pdflatex
directly. Indeed I myself stick to very outdated TeX installations,
but when I have finished something and make it public,
I use some pdflatex installations to which I have access.
