No there is no reason to be shy! - Context has become THE tool for all 
typesetting purposes. So in my environment letters, invoices, 
addres-labels, envelop-printing, greetingcards etc are made up in 
Context together with functionality provided by Metafun. A favorite 
issue is making flowcharts for e.g. bookbinding guides, meatprocessing  
or  visualization of  the production of a tool.  Next to all this I 
write my own books which are completely made up in Context including 
imposition of the pages for folding sections in order to end up with 
sewn books. E.g I prepared a 600 pages book which includes over a 120 
drawings and metapost-figures. This book is bound as a girdle-book. - 
Whenever I am asked to give a presentation there is Context involved. - 
Why? Just because I know I can achieve what I want!

Though there is sometimes a bit of hassle after all the changes in the 
tex-tree occuring during time, Context is still the best environment I 
have ever tried. Many thanks Hans for this great environment!
