Well, those who know exactly what they're doing can probably even get
perfect (La)TeX output out of tin cans if they really get their kicks that
way - but, and no offence to Peter, I don't think the poster quite falls
into that sort of LaTeX wizard class and might just prefer a system that
updates regularly and that does most of the necessary setting up with a
minimum of knowledge on the part of the user.

Of course, I stand to be corrected.
