Synopsis Most of us end up using Windows for document preparation. This talk will cover the usage of LaTeX for creating professionally styled documents and will show how LaTeX can replace your word processor (Eg. M$ Of*ice). The talk's aim is to be productive ASAP, stressing on the non-WYSIWYG approach of LaTeX.
