LaTeX

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 172.17.1.9] on August 21, 2008 08:46 PM
Lean LaTeX as soon as possible. Word Processors will let you down with school/math/science papers in a big way. Learn how to typeset your papers in LaTeX and avoid the mess of WYSIWYG word processing. There is some up-front learning involved, but the time you spend will pay huge dividends as time goes by, especially in college if you write math/science papers. Open source, free, and there are tons of tutorials. If you can do HTML, which is easy, you can do LaTeX.
