Plea for LATEX usage

Why the smart guys who control the publication in the die casting industry are using poor word processors? Is it only an accident that both the quality of the typesetting of papers in die casting congress and their technical content quality is so low? I believe there is a connection. All the major magazines of the the scientific world using TEX or LATEX, why? Because it is very easy to use and transfer (via the Internet) and, more importantly, because it produces high quality documents. NADCA continued to produce text on a low quality word processor. Look for yourself; every transaction is ugly.

Linux has liberated the world from the occupation and control of Microsoft OS. We hope to liberate the NADCA Transaction from such a poor quality word processor. TEX and all (the good ones) supporting programs are free and available every where on the web. There is no reason not to do it. Please join me in improving NADCA's Transaction by supporting the use of LATEX by NADCA.
