comment Does LaTeX really perform worse than Word?
@egreg I respect the feelings of the community and if it stays closed so be it but it doesn't seem any more "opinion based" than the top-voted-question-of-all-time on this site. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/94889/…

@percusse I don't think this will kill TeX but I think you are underestimating the resistance that can be faced when trying to expand its use in education. I am confident that I will have to answer to this paper the next time I argue to include LaTeX exposure at my institution.

@percusse Given the battleground that academic publishing has become, it may be useful to have an expert response to the article on this site that others can point to when this paper is inevitably used to undermine LaTeX use in curricula etc...

@AlanMunn If I knew the answer I wouldn't have to ask the question but I seem to be getting the sense that the productivity metrics used in the paper are not appropriate to evaluate LaTeX. So it seems that there could be an objective answer referencing why this is not an appropriate test of LaTeX.

@AlanMunn I think this topic can generate discussion but I don't see why there cannot be an evaluation of the results of the study based on factual information about TeX and Word (i.e., a non-opinion answer). I am not looking for rants or opinions but rather an analysis of the findings based on expert experience.
