comment Word 2010 on typesetting math
@LuizBorges I would also suggest look at what your peers do in your field and your institution. If a majority of people use TeX for their documents, it would be most beneficial for your to gain that skill since you will be most likely expected to use it sooner or later. And starting early is the best way to do it. If on the other hand, most people use MS Word, then use it. these things are tools which can mostly do what you need them to do. It is a question of know which tool is used in your environment.

comment Word 2010 on typesetting math
I am not entirely sure what sort of answer you expect from this. My take on it would be that if you are happy with the tool you are currently using and can do all you need and want to do with it, then why change. LaTeX is a very good tool which I personally prefer and would chose before any WYSIWYG word processing software. But it is just a opinion/preference and it doesn't mean that other solutions/software are bad. Your question doesn't have an answer, and only invites opinions.

comment How to do a 'printline' in LuaTeX
Any ways to be able to print "\n\n"? I tried that but I get an error? I know it works in lua itself but texlua seems different.

comment How do I use TrueType Fonts with PDFTeX using otftotfm?
have you considered using fontspec with either XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX? These will support OTF and TTF fonts out of the box.

comment Alignment of logo in first and second page of a certificate
was worth a try but it is indeed weird. btw adding \parindent 0pt does help with the centering of the non paragraph elements. still playing with your file though.

comment Alignment of logo in first and second page of a certificate
I have had funny behaviour like that in the past with scrartcl. which I solve by putting my titlepage in a \begin{titlepage}\end{titlepage}. I think by default scrartcl expect one. what happens if you add the option notitlepage to your class definition?

comment Left-middle-right delimiters and unicode-math
For me, Asana-Math and Latin Modern Math produce consistent results on both lines with lualatex (although I am not too keen on the font itself). the *brace | and [ ] are all tall enough to fit the line. I suspect it might be a version problem and an unresolved bug in XITS

comment Quote marks are backwards (using texmaker/PDFLatex)
You must have an non-terminated pair somewhere. csquotes will parse things in a way that goes: I see a " so I will start a quote, and then I see another one, so I will close it. If at some point you opened a quote without closing it or closed one without an opener, then every things will shift. if you have multiple instances of this, it will be messy.

comment Quote marks are backwards (using texmaker/PDFLatex)
@umbraphile that is quite possible, MS Word has the nasty default habit of auto replacing quotes with "smart quotes". with a utf8 input latex will be able to parse them and display them but it does mess things up if you don't realise they are there. You could try and change the font used in your editor and see if the characters look different.
