Re: TeXLive is much more than LaTeX.
 
Of course I've heard of everything you've mentioned; I'm at a university where these are used all the time. Often, they are referred to as just LaTeX, or LaTeX suite. This may be technically incorrect, but it was the common parlance at my institution. Perhaps it would be best to redirect the LaTeX page to the TeXLive page.

It seems to me that TeXLive should be under the LaTeX heading instead. New users will probably search for the "LaTeX" heading first. Also, LaTeX is more general, and can emcompass GUI applications, etc. --Arcanazar 13:32, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

Reply: No. TeXLive provides MUCH MUCH more than just LaTeX! Ever heard of Plain TeX, ConTeXt, metapost, xindy, bibtex, etc? :) --firmicus 03:04, 16 September 2009 (EDT)
