All academic disciplines should should use LaTeX

I fail to see how this no-brainer is not yet implemented across most of academia—it is especially glaringly absent in the humanities. Microsoft Word is the single worst software with which to write things. It is only marginally cleverer than a typewriter and even then worse in several ways.

LaTeX is simple, straightforward and—especially given all the brainy folk in universities—barely has a learning curve. Preparing manuscripts will be so much easier if everyone just exchanged .tex files and got done with it. Inertia once again prevents progress.

This is a note, a brief thought or reflection recorded for being meaningful or for sharing things of interest. Longer writings are in the essays section.
