Last semester I taught two undergraduates in my lab to use latex.  
They had to start from scratch with MikTeX (not much help from me  
there), but they got it quite fast. In a dumb-down world of low  
expectations where anything beyond MSW is too geeky and anything  
beyond high-school algebra is too advanced, these kids made me feel  
better about the future.
