A Canadian geek, finishing off a chemistry degree. I typically hang around TeX.SX as I like the community and learn things by reading the questions. I'm also active on RPG.SX and History.SX.

comment Small-caps, old-style numbers, and some ligatures produce odd symbols in PDF copy text?
I still have this question open, which is a potential solution, though it would jack up the file size: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/33490/…

comment LaTeX updated tool for Windows 7
I think emacs has an autocomplete feature. Notepad++ does, but only if you have used that command before. TeXStudio and TeXMaker both have very good autocomplete features.

comment Automatic thousands separators?
In most cases it is probably better to use scientific notation or a larger unit (km instead of m for example), unless you need all the digits.

comment How to show \listoffigures and \listoftables on one page and in the ToC?
What class are you using for your thesis? Or did you use, anyway. Article doesn't add a newpage by default.

comment Which package to use for presentations ? Beamer, Prosper, or Other
Supporting @AndrewStacey's comment; TeXLive only includes packages usable with fully open software, and includes Beamer: See texdev.net/2012/03/27/the-tex-live-inclusion-policy for a discussion on PDF as an open format. Also, while you can be pretty vendor locked while an ISO standard (docx) there are multiple implementations of PDF (xpdf, SumatraPDF, foxit) meaning you can view PDFs on a computer with 0 adobe products installed. Just trying to clarify things.

comment use Times new roman font in TOC when using \usepackage{tocstyle} \usetocstyle{allwithdot}
You could also just load font packages, since tgterms gives better text, but will still match with math-mode mathptmx.\usepackage{mathptmx} followed by \usepackage{tgtermes} is working quite nicely for me. (Re:the final line of your answer.)
