I use ConTeXt to typeset:
1. slides
2. mathematical formula
3. Chinese

It is far more easier to write slides in ConTeXt than in LaTeX. And 
ConTeXt can produce PDF directly.

The math enviroment is not as good as it in LaTeX, but it is enough for 
me now.

The Chinese enviroment is not as good as LaTeX(CJK) either, but it is 
easier to learn. I hope the Chinese module can be enhanced some day.

ConTeXt is a good work, and I like it! I'm going to stick to it.
