No, not alone, but they do occupy 90% of it therefore assuming a
Win/32/64 environment is going to be right the majority of the time. I
personally know many users who use different flavors of LaTeX on
Windows machines simply because they work better there then on their
native *nix cousins. I use FreeBSD as my primary PC environment;
however, I have never gotten any distro of LaTeX to work worth a crap
on it. I would rather pull my own teeth, sans Novocaine, then attempt to
get it working correctly. When time is money, I, like many others,
simply go when the money is.

Just my 2¢.
