I didn't mean to say that I use MS Office.  However, on most Windows
boxes MSO is installed. What we need is a TeX system that most Windows
users can manage because otherwise they will stay with the Office
suits. See the other post on TL vs. MiKTeX. 

I don't remember a question on de.comp.text.tex lately by someone who
said he used TL under Windows.
