Oh, no, people use it, LaTeX is too difficult/slow and one
tend to end up polishing the details forever in
a (re)compilation loop that's endless, almost, is what they
think, at least.

Do I agree? Yes, but at the same time that complexity and
control over the details are the strengths of it.

If one do one document in LaTeX, then polish it like crazy
forever until the result is perfect, then one can use these
same settings again for the next document and ever document
ever on, just type the contents and compile and ship...

So one can have the best of both worlds!

Well, in theory at least ;)
