I am a mathematician by profession and quite a long-time (since around 1995 – as of now [2014], this means more than half of my life) TeX user by hobby.

I started with plain TeX, and much later (in the early 2000s) moved to LaTeX; I still use plain TeX occasionally (and when writing LaTeX classes/packages). Quite recently I also started to use ConTeXt.

I am a heavy Emacs user, though still a newbie – I started in 2001.

I have a blog about (among others) TeX and friends, located at http://mbork.pl/Content_AND_Presentation.

comment Using LaTeX to solve math problems in LaTeX more efficiently than with only paper
@T.Verron: I often write \frac12 etc., though recently I try to avoid it a bit. Not a big deal, I guess. (And re: journal: yes, I do work for a journal, and I can see really, really bad LaTeX code. \frac1n really is not that bad...)

comment FIles produced by compiling LaTeX source code
@Adam: I don't know about Vim, but in Emacs' default file manager (Dired) you can hide "uninteresting" files (see emacswiki.org/DiredPlus).

Don't delete these files. They are useful for users, even if the users don't know that. If you use the \label/\ref mechanism, for instance, deleting the .aux file after each compilation will make it stop working. If you want to have a table of contents, deleting the .toc file will break it. Etc.

comment Why does LaTeX macro spells \LaTeX{} (which requires Shift) and not \latex{}?
@ajeh: you don't get LaTeX in the resulting pdf, you get the correct logo. And, as others said, if you use it often, you may define your own macro or configure your editor to capitalize \LaTeX correctly.

What do you mean by "duplicated"? (I didn't test the solutions there.)

Ha, I found out that my question is mostly duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/q/41140/5626 .

Thanks! I thought about it, too, but some time after posting the question. It might work, and if there's no package doing this, I'll probably end up writing one. ;)
