I have a professor who requires me to use Latex but he mainly speaks in terms of PC. I have a Mac so I have to find appropriate alternatives. So far I have purchased "Latexian" as an editor, and see that the MikTeX distribution is mainly for PC. It seems that the alternative for Mac is Mactex.
Am I correct? Is there any other concern I should consider? Out of curiosity, why wouldn't Latexian have a built in installer, since it can obviously generate live PDF views anyway?
