Hi, I am new to using Latex and would like to use either MikTex or ProText on windows 7. Listed are what I plan to use it for:
- Math and science related material, undergrad and grad class note-taking, reports, general note-taking. Trying to learn and use and better alternative to Word/OOo Writer.
- Use it with LyX for most of my work, but would like to learn Latex on my free time.
- Currently installed and use GNU Emacs (XEmacs wouldn't install on W7 and apparently has problems with Vista), which came with AucTex.
- Capability to import/export graphs, charts, diagrams.
I have installed and successfully configured Lyx with TexLive2008 and Aquamacs, on my iMac (running OS X 10.6), but looking for an ideal distro for my PC laptop (running Win7), which goes to class and work with me. I am a geology major soon to graduate and will be studying soil science for my MS. **I am currently learning Lyx on my iMac, and like it so far**
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Don't know which distribution is the right one for you? Then this is the place to go!
