Re(1): LaTeX

Publishers get layout wrong sometimes & some won't typeset your review papers.

If you don't want to learn LaTeX, you can use LyX or other GUIs.

If you don't mind learning it, any text editor will do (meaning you can write ANYWHERE & could use your preferred editor instead of the clunky one included with an office suite).

Writing in LaTeX enables "plugins"; easy separation of textual content, media content, and styling; easy version tracking/diffing; etc.
