During a conversation with one of my friends who is a die hard user of MS word, I had to face this question-
Why LaTeX and not MS word?.
Though I gave usual reasons like quality of typing and ease of typing mathematics etc.. my friend did not seem to get convinced. Hence I thought I would get some help from here.
My queries are:
Kindly point out some (main) differences between LaTeX and MS word i.e., the advantages of LaTeX over MS word (even providing the links to some good articles would help).
What are the main disadvantages of LaTeX over MS word.
Kindly excuse me if this question does not sound like a technical one.
