LaTeX is pretty rad for writing good-looking reports, especially thesis reports.

LaTeX protip: If you want a word count in LaTeX, it's hard because the source code has all sorts of crap that will inflate your word count, and getting a word count from the PDF is a pain in the arse. If you're using Ubuntu and have the package texlive-extra-utils, open a terminal and run this command in your LaTeX source folder:

detex *.tex | wc -w

detex outputs all the content from the .tex files but with the LaTeX markup stripped out. Then wc counts the words. Easy!
