Well, not pure Tex, but I've done a lot with Latex. Despite its lack of WYSIWYG editors (there are some, like Lyx, that get close, though), it's probably still the most versatile way of writing mathematical documents. My first book (on theoretical biology) was written entirely in Latex. Even though I've written virtually no real computer code since I quit (more than a year ago now), I still use Latex.
1987–1991
1988–
1990–2000
Written numerous scientific papers in Latex.
1991–1995
I wrote html2latex back in the dark days of the interwebs, because I needed to print web pages for people. My ignorance of good C programming was only matched by my ignorance of good (La)TeX.
1992–1996
LATEX rocks. Doggy book FTW.
1992–1999
learned it in university
1992–2006
Thrown away after I escaped from academia.
1992–1998

Well, LaTeX to be specific, but custom stuff written for my Honors year report at Uni.

It's always hard to re-learn TeX after a long time without using it, but damn, does it make my CV look beautiful.
2000–2008
I used LaTex in fact. It is the standard for writing research papers.
2001–
LaTeX and KOMA-Script
2001–
2002–
Starting using TeX with LaTeX for my college papers. Love it.
2003–
LaTeX owns all.
2003–2004
Wrote my diploma thesis in LaTex and had a job as typesetter for a while.
2004–
Started using it for writing scientific course summaries, I still use it for (almost) every report I submit.
2004–
2004–2007
For setting work at University.

LaTeX! Mmmm... documenty.

shocked and amazed professors with my structured awesomeness (LaTeX really tho).

LaTeX is perfect for creating documents that do what you want.
2007–2010
Yep. Writing scientific papers with latex rocks.
2008–
Wouldn't write a paper without it.
2008–2009
2008–
Learn the syntax in 5 minutes, then just look at the reference? Maybe I'm wrong.
2008–
2009–
Used it to write my very first (and ultimately awful/short) paper. Once you're used to it, it's kind of nice!
2009–
2013–
Specifically LaTeX. Started using it with Two Scoops of Django. Use it for many other documentation efforts, mostly for commercial work.
2014–
Still do my slides with Beamer
