My book was written with 100% free software. Besides the ones I used explicitely (emacs, nxml-mode, darcs), there were many "infrastructure" programs such as GNU utils and the Linux kernel. Thanks to all the authors. #IloveFS
[Full disclosure: the final preparation of the book, made by the publisher, involved non-free software. Anyone knows a good equivalent of A... I...D... in free software?]
@bortzmeyer Scribus ?
@bortzmeyer not an équivalent but LaTeX?
@bortzmeyer typographically speaking and for printing purposes, I believe it is hard to find something better than LaTeX above all if you are not a publisher or a typographer.
@bortzmeyer there's a brazilian publisher (hedra) that only uses free software. the owner is a linux geek >.< they use latex
we published a book only made with latex. I did the latex work (get the data from a pdf previously made with indesin) and redo all footnotes, index, bibliography - hard work 🙂
