(La)TeX is user-friendly. It's just that it choses its friends with care.

comment How do you start out each document?
Some editors use 'wizards' for that. In certain instances you can even set up yourself, what that automatically generated preamble should contain. But I don't think there is a universal, one-size-fits-all variant. And neither should there be one IMHO.

comment Tikz drawing a ring with nodes
@Paramar: Some pointers off-hand: You could draw a full circle then place the nodes along it with \foreach (this should be quite easy to do). As for the black dot inside the white circle, that's possible with a simple fill, no trickery needed, like so: \draw [fill=black] (36:5cm) circle (1mm); (here the circle with the nodes has a radius of 5 cm and the first small circle at 36 deg, if we have 10 along the whole circle, so I center the dot in the small circle; the 1mm radius of the dot can be adjusted at will - maybe not the most elegant, but a simple, straightforward solution).

comment concave curve in tikz
Looks like a quarter of an ellipse to me. Try something like: \draw (0,0) arc [start angle=0, end angle=90, x radius=1cm, y radius=5mm];

I seriously doubt circuitikz is of any help here, but it certainly is quite straightforward to do in tikz.

comment Loading packages from separate document
From your question I gather you have the subfiles in a central location. You could create a myconfig.sty file, in the same central location and insert there all the \usepackage{whatchacallit} calls and any other global options/definitions. In your main file you would have this one only, i.e. \usepackage{myconfig}.

comment Is LaTeX nowadays still that superior to Word?
@barbarabeeton: The ] after terrible got caught in the actual link passed to the browser. A bit dated reading (applies to Word 2007), but still valid on most points.
