This question already has an answer here:

I see that there is a LaTeX package available for Windows. I was recommended to install MikTeX on my PC w/ Windows10.

Why would one choose one over the other?

    What do you mean by "a latex package"? – Ulrike Fischer Sep 29 '17 at 17:55

    note that you need a tex system to run latex, the two main ones are miktex and texlive, which you choose is really just a matter of taste, the latex functionality is the same in either case. – David Carlisle Sep 29 '17 at 18:37
  • "LaTeX package", as in a software package available on a website to download to my home computer. – TommyK Oct 2 '17 at 19:18
