ANyone know where I can get a copy of Math Type for cheap? I'm sick of using MS Word Equation Editor. It's buggy as all fuck.

Try LaTex, it´s free and used very widely.

Tex (what latex is built on) I believe is actuallly a turing complete programming language. LaTex is a pain in the ass at first (not wysiwyg at all) but equations come out gorgeous in it. A true geek uses latex for their documents.

deepu is correct. I think it´s pretty fast learning since it´s fun to see what you can get. And your documents WILL look professionally.

MikTex + WinEdt is not hard if you get sample files from someone who has been using LeTex for years. That is how I learned it. It is much faster than learning from the manual. Learn from examples, and just modify the sample to suit your needs. Most math research journals accept only LeTex (dvi files).

A fully functional (and registerable) version of mathtype 5.2 is avaiable from the mathtype homepage. 5.1 can still be downloaded from various parterner sites that have not updated their webpage. You can buy a student license for a reduced price or get a password the way most poor students do.
