comment As an expert, can you always use TeX for (nearly) any kind of document?
+1 for a balanced answer. A few points, however: 1) Word and Writer both have good separation of content and style, it's just that very few people use it (and it's not forced on users, which is probably a bad thing). 2) Typesetting quality is a function of the renderer, not the format. It's conceivable that OO might implement tex-quality rendering for odt->pdf.

@DamienPollet: You should make that an answer. It's the best one so far.

This question is pointless, as phrased. You can use tex for any document, including for music - hell, you could write a webserver or an FPS in it if you were a real masochist. What's important is whether there are document types for which you should not use tex...

comment How to find the lost text part when having “Float(s) lost” error
I'm seeing this too. I'm using the AGU latex template, and everything works perfectly on draft mode, but I get this error, and one of my tables goes missing when not on draft mode. Even more annoying, this is the second of two nearly identical tables, and the first one works fine. Extremely frustrating.

Where would one find your graphviz.sty? This answer seems a little useless without it.

comment Biblatex: submitting to a journal
It's clearly high time that journal publishers were dragged kicking and screaming into the century of the fruitbat.

comment Biblatex: submitting to a journal
To answer my own comment, some journals (Looking at you, AGU) expressly forbid the usage of \def outside their provided style files: % PLEASE DO NOT USE YOUR OWN MACROS % DO NOT USE \newcommand, \renewcommand, or \def.. So even this solution does not work. Horrible.

comment Changing font size of selected slides in beamer
This doesn't seem to affect things more than one level deep inside itemize lists...

comment How can I make a table like the type in this image in LaTeX?
I actually think your version is much nicer. The break lends weight to the header (although perhaps you don't want this).

comment Why not use vertical lines ('|') in a tabular?
I wish I could downvote RTFM comments.

comment Why not use vertical lines ('|') in a tabular?
-1. This takes no consideration of how data is supposed to be read. Other answers have amply shown that some data is meant to be read vertically, in which case horizontal lines only get in the way, at least in the body of the table.

comment Beamer: change size of figure caption
Also, you can restrict this to figures by using the 'figure' option \captionsetup[figure]{font=scriptsize,labelfont=scriptsize}.

comment Branching or duplication in source control?
sure, but the same thing applies - just tag that version :)
