Microsoft Bill Gates himself writes about how he works in his office. "It's pretty incredible to look back 30 years to when Microsoft (Research) was starting and realize how work has been transformed. We're finally getting close to what I call the digital workstyle. If you look at this office, there isn't much paper in it. On my desk I have three screens, synchronized to form a single desktop. I can drag items from one screen to the next. Once you have that large display area, you'll never go back, because it has a direct impact on productivity."

Bill Gates is single-handedly making Vista.

At least now I realize why Bill Gates is so successful and I'm merely a lowly pleb: he makes use of all sorts of gadgets and Microsoft products, and I rely extensively on ancient technologies such as paper and TeX. ;)

TeX is not an ancient technology. Most DTP programs still use part of TeX for typesetting. LaTeX is still the best way to produce fomulae heavy, structured documents.

Although I do recommend you to email your typeset PDFs instead of printing them in an effort to save more trees and energy.
