texlive – A comprehensive distribution of TeX and friends
A comprehensive TeX system that you can install on your hard disk. It
includes support for most Unix system architectures, including
GNU/Linux, and for Windows. The MacTeX
distribution is developed as part of the TeX live effort, and has
similar properties, but is distributed separately.
The TeX, PDFε-TeX, X∃TeX and LuaTeX engines are provided in the
distribution, with several different running formats each; a wide
range of support programs and macro packages is also included.
Beware: the download is large (>2 Gbytes); it comes
in the form of an ISO image for a DVD.
