[quote]My favorite non-wysiwyg editor for documentation is texmaker (http://www.xm1math.net/texmaker/) , it will make it a little bit easier to make clean LaTeX document for postscript or PDF output.
Thank you for posting this link! I am currently su apt-getting it right now. :)
Would LaTeX also be advisable for non-technical works as well? I ask because I would like to compose several non-Linux related works, such as a science fiction book? Thank you for your help in this matter.[/quote]
LaTeX is commonly used for most professional documentations such as books and mathematic uses. The language syntax can be a little difficult since it is a markup language, but the resulting professional output will be well worth the effort.
But to answer your questions clearly, yes it can be used for any writing you wish. I personally use LaTeX for my resume, personal manuals other read-only documents that I wish to share.
