LaTeX just gets better.  Every time I do a non-trivial document
in anything else, I regret it.  Larger projects -> LaTeX.

For trivial documents, KWord is better than I expected; I like
it a lot better than Openoffice Writer.

If you don't like WYSIWYG and you have to give a slide show,
check out mgp (MagicPoint).
