You can write LaTeX in notepad, if that's what you're asserting.>>32093514
Do it op. It's piss easy. Find a CV style and you're golden. I used to do my slides and design specifications for programs I was writing for shitty uni courses in LaTeX. The prof loved mine.
Also, I use emacs. It's very nice for TeX/LaTeX/ConTeXT editing.
If you don't want to learn an editor, you can always use texshop.
Pic related, feels like I'm typing a lot when doing LaTeX, but it is much faster than writing docs in Word/Writer.
