Comment: Should have used LaTeX (Score 1) 216

by bjcubsfan (#29056637) Attached to: Open Textbooks Win Over Publishers In CA

I think it's great that this is happening and look forward to the adoption of open textbooks.

However, I looked at the PDFs that they post on their website, and they look awful. The formulas and plots were hard to read and pixelated. They should have used LaTeX for their typesetting and formulas and maybe sage or matplotlib to make the graphs.
