comment Where can I find documentation about TikZ/TikZPicture?
@Alenanno: it's easier than you might think, unless you want to do really strange things. Don't forget to take a look at texample.net/tikz !

comment How can I effectively diff 2 versions of a book produced by ConTeXt?
What can I say... Are you sure that such a complicated structure is the best possible one? One possible solution might be to pdf2txt the resulting document and diff this one. This might be a better idea after making a special "mode" to eliminate page numbers, headers etc.

@percusse: Well, I'd leave it as it is. This way anyone reading this has some info from my answer and more info on drawing particular things in yours.

comment Migrating from MiKTeX on Windows to OS X. Toolchain options?
I have no experience with OS X, but I'll put in my 2 cents anyway (as a comment). 1. Nowadays storage is cheap, a full installation is not that big a problem as it used to be. (My first PC, used also for TeX, had 170MB HDD-and it had to be enough for two OSs!) 2. In TeXlive you can choose what to install with "rough" granularity ("collections") or with a finer one ("packages"). And installing something new is not something you have to do each day, so it is also not that big issue.

comment Which package to use for presentations ? Beamer, Prosper, or Other
@AlanMunn: agreed. However, after a short glance at powerdot's manual, I expect that it might be easier to make one's own "theme" in it. So it might be worth remembering. (And it has a distinct look, which is important in the world bored by similar beamer presentations...;))

I mostly agree, though "inifintely customizable" is a bit exaggerated. See e.g. mbork.pl/…

comment Which package to use for presentations ? Beamer, Prosper, or Other
Thanks for pointing this out. Does powerdot work with pdflatex? However: (a) beamer manual is very well-organized, and you actually dan only read an 8-page tutorial (chapter 3); moreover, (b) chapter 5 (9 pages) is an excellent general guide to creating presentations.
