Installing Latex on Laptop

  1. Sep 21, 2009 #1
    I want to install the Latex software on my laptop but i dont know where to do this from. is there a good website to do this. also, is it possible to install it for free? i dont want just the trial, i want it forever. if it's not free, how much would it cost?

    Thank you

    Here is a post I've written before:

    The LaTeX system is always free. However, some editors require a small fee. In that case, forget about them and find another one.

    I just installed Miktex and it's working :)

    The latest version of MikTeX (MikTeX 2.8) is quite nice. It now includes a basic editor and previewer called TeXworks.
