Boston Computer Society Technical Typesetting Benchmarks

In the early days of workable PC's, the BCS did a benchmark comparison of the technical typesetters then on the market. The American Math Society published the results in the Notices. As a new PhD, I was impressed with TeX's ability to handle anything they could throw at it.

As part of doing CTAN, I redid this document in LaTeX (it was originally done in plain TeX), with the permission of R Palais. Naturally I retained only the TeX part. Here is a PDF and a zip of the source. (The license is that my work is Public Domain; I can't speak for the original document.)

Open Source software is a great idea. This project would not have gotten done without it.
