LaTeX vs. Office's

I was talking about this over lunch with some Opera guys here on XTech, and then I attended to two presentations where people where talking about XML on your documents, and one of the presentations was in fact about ODF.

For all of those I wss just thinking .oO( damn, LaTeX does better than that for years! )

Well, now I just came across this rant that shows exactly my frustrations everytime I try to use an Office suite. Well, not all of them: the last time I has such stresses was because people tend to use .xls's for documents where you have to fill some fields... and when you must end with a printable version, it just SUCKS.

People, if you want WYSIWYG stuff, can you please at least add usabillity into it?

  1. Man I'm wholly with you on that, LaTeX rules compared to those WYSYWYG suites, and for free!
