Hi everyone. I just wanna ask: what's the difference of TeX and LaTeX?
Please help me..

TeX is a typesetting system containing greek symbols, and other characters, and LaTeX is the markup language for using TeX.

That is at least my understanding of it.

TeX is a typesetting program created by Donald E. Knuth, well suited especially for typesetting scientific articles, books and such. LaTeX is a macro package created on top of TeX by Leslie Lamport. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TeX.
