A new study in PLOS ONE1 concludes that even novice MS Word users perform better than expert LaTeX users in document creation.
I have read the article and I feel like I have identified some flaws in their approach and design but I figured this community would be the best positioned to rigorously evaluate these results.
Based on this study can we conclude that Word works better than LaTeX?

UPDATESince the question has been closed, but it's clear that there is interest to discuss the topic, I've set up a chat room for discussion.
UPDATE 2I have created a meta question to clarify the reason why this question was closed when other similar questions remain open.
UPDATE 3People in glass houses... The article had to be republished a few months later due to publishing errors whilst using Arbortext :-)
