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).
