And I couldn't get a single faculty member in science or math  
interested in TeX when I offered a credit course for faculty for free  
at my community college. This was 15 years ago. Maybe it's better now  
that there are packages for most tastes, LaTeX2e is nicer than 2.09  
was and we have lovely GUI front ends.

Good Luck,
