This is a confusing business, because of cross licensing.

TimesNewRomanPS from MonoType is - as far as I recollect -
a font that has the same glyph shapes as TimesNRMT,
but advance widths adjusted to be equal to those of 
Times-Roman from Adobe.  Then, it appears that MT has
offered at various times also the Adobe TimesNewRomanPS
under the cross licensing. In this case the only real difference
may be in the hinting (and who has to pay licensing fees to whom).
