comment TexLive compile using Tex and DVI
At the command line, latex myfile.tex produces a dvi. Then use dvips and ps2pdf to create a pdf version.

comment Fast way to underline words and characters
OK, I've given a slightly more detailed answer below. It may be that this (or something very similar) has been asked before on this site, but if there is a duplicate, I have been unable to find it.

Using \let makes a copy of a command; I think this is what you need.

Do you just want \let\und\underline?

comment gnuplottex not recognizing options
@Knigge46 --- you haven't gone far enough! The version of gnuplottex in TeXLive 2012 doesn't have the subfolder option. The version in TL2014 does (I don't know about TL2013). You might get away with just downloading the latest version of gnuplottex from ctan. However, this may cause trouble with other out of date packages. It would be best to install TL2014.

I think you should also use \DeclareMathOperator for diag and nondiag.

comment Can I get $$…$$ to behave like \[…\]?
@Gaussler --- \bf, \tt etc. were used in LaTeX 2.09 and their meaning was preserved in 2e to maintain compatibility with old documents. Also, you might be interested in Barbara Beeton's comment here regarding Donald Knuth's thoughts on the use of $ symbols for entering and exiting math mode.

comment Vector vs. Raster: Is there any reason to include (larger) vector images into a LaTeX document?
@Szczypawka --- Some complex images (e.g. shaded contour plots with large numbers of different regions) can be difficult to represent as vector graphics, and in those cases bitmaps may work better. However, for an image such as yours, a (decent) vector representation will give better quality and smaller size. There is no need to use a vector representation, but then there is no need to use LaTeX. You can write your document in Word and draw your diagrams using Paint.
