latex just rules

Yeah, there's hope, good articles _do_ pop up from time to time.

Latex is the way to go my friends, no matter what OS you use. My favourite latex-helping ide is kile (rockingly good), but technixcenter+miktex is also great for windows clickers. But that doesn't matter, even if doing it with vim, it's the best you can do.

Hell, I get sudden deadly headaches when I just think about e.g. the equation editor of Word these days.

My motivation for turning to latex was also paper writing for conferences and journals, most of which - thankfully - provide latex templates/styles to use (it wasn't always so). You don't have to worry about formatting, figures that don't keep their siz and place, reference lists that don't refresh as they should, crashes all over the place, etc. It Just Works, in thebest sence of the words.
