This question already has an answer here:
- Reasons to use plain TeX 7 answers
I was surprised to learn that some users, as show in this post, stil insist on working exclusively in plain Tex, as opposed to LaTeX.
I most certainly understand the benefits of occasionally resorting to plain TeX commands, but it got me wondering…
What are the reasons, aside force of habit, perhaps, why one would want to use only TeX commands all the time and eschew LaTeX altogether, these days?
Are there definite advantages, perhaps under some very special purposes, in using exclusively plain TeX?
