@codingcowboy I use LaTeX all the time for scientific/mathematic word creation, but its WYSIWYG nature has some serious limits in terms of graphic layout and styling. It is a good choice, but not a universally applicable one.

@derek I mostly agree with the sentiment as a long-time Emacs/Org user and a person who stubbornly chooses to keep all of my notes in Markdown. However, there are reasons for WYSIWYG applications in graphic design. Separation of content and styling is not always beneficial. So I think a bit of nuance on this area is warranted.
