Some profs need word files for an unknown reason

I think its easier to check word count, double spaces, White words, 1.5 interline.

They may be used as examples for future reference. Then they'd need to censor your name, which is a lot easier on word

Why not the .tex source file? Word stinks btw

You sound like a lamo who thinks everything stinks.

Good try, MS Office sales rep

I don’t know about you, but my professors generally prefer a format they’re comfortable with

In my MSW, if I handed in a Tex file they'd think my document had been corrupted or some shit.

Easier to mark and you can make comments using native functions.
