Re(4): Use LaTeX

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 24.210.249.184] on September 14, 2007 12:47 PM
It's so tedious to see the "why not use LaTeX?" thread every time anybody brings up word processors. Sure, it's appropriate for some things (and yes, I use TeX sometimes), but it's hardly without its own problems. It's certainly not appropriate for an enterprise run on editable office documents, nor for people who have to submit Word-compatible manuscripts to publishers, nor for grandma who just wants to write a letter.
