I switched from (an early Slackware version of) TeX to the debian 
version.  So far, the only thing I found missing was dvi2tty, a renderer 
that generates more-or-less straight text from the dvi, good for the 
graphically impaired.

On the other hand, everything else has been wonderful, particularly with 
the smooth interface provided by emacs and auctex.  I'm a very happy user.
