I am not trying to start a war here, I would just like a few answers. What
are the advantages of using "proText" over "MiKTeX", or vice versa.

I have seen remarks like, "proTeXt is MiKTeX for Dummies"; however, that
seems overly harsh and is most likely inaccurate..

I have MiKTex installed on a Win-8.1 machine and am using TeXstudio as the
front end. It works fine. I am just trying to determine if there is any
reason that I should switch and if I do decide to try the "proTeXT"
distribution, do I have to remove both MiKTeX and TeXstudio before I do the

I sincerely appreciate any assistance that anyone can supply me with.
