In my (rather limited, I admit) experience, most math people at my school (Berkeley) use LaTeX because one can easily download self-installing executables for LaTeX. Although Macintoshes tend to enjoy more popularity, most (at least to my knowledge) students and professors don't seem all that interested in computers and don't want the trouble of setting up Fink.

This is one of our major tasks for this year : to get
rid once for all of the UNIX idiosyncracies of TeXmacs,
and have a native install of TeXmacs for all the important
platforms (i.e., Windows & Mac OS). Thus in some months
from now, people will not have these kinds of excuses
for not using TeXmacs anymore ;-)...
