Why not eqnarray?

There are just too many old LaTeX tutorial out there that suggest using eqnarray, so learners just stick to eqnarray (eqnarray*) instead of align (align*) provided by AMSMath package. This article provides detailed explanation to why one should avoid eqnarray.

AMSMath package do provide a lot of environments that should be good enough for average use. Skim through ftp://ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsmath/amsldoc.pdf to get an idea of what it can do.
