Linux in Science report released

Author: JT Smith

It's at seul.org, and includes this item: "One of the primary tasks in research is the communication of existing research and the context it can provide into the primary
literature. Many journals accept a number of different formats, many of these formats are commercial formats however.
leaving open source proponents wondering about what tools they should use for research writing.

One good option is a text-based format called LaTeX which uses markup codes (not unlike the 'reveal codes' feature of
Word Perfect) to delineate various attributes of the text."
