No.  Although viewing at 100% could logically mean what you say, it actually has the technical meaning of looking at the basic file from the camera at 100%; it's also called viewing "actual pixels".  Indeed, to be truly 100% it has to be a full-size image (raw or best quality JPG).

Thanks.  It would appear then, that I can never be a pixel peeper because I never shoot best quality JPEG.  On my 6 mp camera, I leave it set to 4 mp, then downsize from there.
