Probably the simplest way is to set the default Magnification. Open the 
Option Inspector. Make sure that you're setting the global preferences. Use 
the lookup to find the Magnification and set it to what you like.

Be warned on Unix, though. Fonts oftentimes don't scale well. Some font 
sizes may not look very good.
