I agree learning TeX is useful, if for no other reason, you're going to
encounter it despite your best efforts :-)
I learned TeX long ago and used it for over a decade, but I switched to
using WYSIWYG editors ten years ago or so and have never looked back. On
the few occasions where I've had to write TeX, I'm reminded why I switched.
The constant "write, compile, fix (once or twice or ...), view" loop is
just wasted time. Maybe I'm a sloppier typist than others, but I find the
instant feedback provided by WYSIWYG to be a real time saver.
