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, XeTeX 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 (nearly 3 Gbytes); it comes in the form of an ISO image for a DVD.
