Re: Use LaTeX

Amen to that. Your experience is identical to mine. To me the relevance of Word is nil because it doesn't work on Linux and it doesn't open ODF documents. For all original documents I use LaTeX. For fancy page layouts I use Scribus. Whenever some moron sends me a Word document I immediately convert it to ODF if I need to edit it, or PDF otherwise. That way I can still read these documents years later.
