I am mostly a reader at these sites, I just don't always logon.

@UlrikeFischer I suggest that you reword and compile your comments as an answer so we can conclude this question.

comment Can MikTeX and TeXLive share a common package installation tree?
It seems that I will have to move over to TeXLive as the LuaLaTeX in MikTeX has not been updated in the last few months and 0.76 is causing warnings now. So the issue is now: "Overcome be events (OBE)".

comment What are the advantages of TeX Live over MiKTeX?
I add a4paper as a standard option when I use article, report or document classes and fix the margins with geometry.

At this stage MikTeX's luatex is older than the one in TeXLive, so it seem things are changing.

@UlrikeFischer I will look into it, although space is maybe cheap, bandwith is not so cheap. I like to the same things one of. I recently copied a few 180GB images and that took forever and a day, so reduction of duplication would be a bonus.

comment Can MikTeX and TeXLive share a common package installation tree?
I used MikTeX only on Windows, but my Windows' are now mere virtual guests on the host. I will still for a long time to come, use these guests and I have documents and styles I build on them. I can't just switch it off. (There was a MikTeX for Linux, but it was discontinued and it was only pdftex.)

Linux only doesn't have MikTeX any longer.

comment Is there any way to do a correct word count of a LaTeX document?
I suggest you change it to:\immediate\write18{texcount -nc -inc -sum \jobname.tex > wordcount.tex} \newcommand\wordcount{\verbatiminput{wordcount.tex}} % Count of characters \immediate\write18{texcount -char -nc -freq \jobname.tex > charcount.tex} \newcommand\charcount{\verbatiminput{charcount.tex}} then becomes filename independant.
