\doquote{The current era seems to be one of great stability:\\\TeX\ and \LaTeX\
itself are now firmly settled with refinements to
packages \dots,\\ever-improving installation via the \TeX\ Live CDs, better

\doquote{Between the easy distribution of packages through CTAN\\and a better
process in \LaTeXe\ for integrating packages,\\the number of packages seems to
have exploded.\\It is also easier to find and distribute documentation,\\so
there is a lot better process for finding out how to do things.}{DAN

\doquote{One of the main reasons I recommend \LaTeX\ is I often meet grad students \\
who are groaning about the pain of dealing with their bibliographies\\
A user of \LaTeX{}/\BibTeX\ who has a sensible Makefile never has any such pain.\\
The bibliography just happens,\\
and is perfectly formatted in whatever house style is desired.}{

\doquote{\dots\ if we are over-zealous in respecting Don's wish
that \TeX{} remain unchanged\\

for perpetuity, we will end up with a museum piece\\

\doquote{\dots{} there are so many developments:\\
modern \TeX{}s don't have the arbitrary restrictions of the original programs,\\we can now produce a
