I personal like TeX more to write documents even when the expression
formating in Math 4.0 looks better than ever.
The first reason is: I like to have my hands on the keyboard and I hate
switch between the mous and the keyboard. It is much to slow, it breaks
of ideas .. ok I hate it

than to make
StyleBoxe + Palettes to enter the boxes fast (with a mouse).
The third reason is: LaTeX can better deal with meta-informations like
table of contents, index, literatur data bases ..
If you become a bit handy in LaTeX you will not type formulas with
