You're going to have problems cutting kerfs with a miter saw. A table saw, radial arm saw, or circular saw would work though.

comment Should I run laminate continuously through rooms, or separate with T moulding?
Going backwards isn't that big of a deal. I managed just fine while running continuous laminate from a room to a closet.

comment Can I install laminate next to tile without using T-moulding?
Very good point about the manufacturer warranty! It's something I hadn't considered, but I ultimately decided to accept the small risk of buckling. I figure I can always shave off a bit of the first plank and install a T molding if it does buckle. I was planning on uploading an answer after a year of issue-free installation, since the most expansion I'll see will probably occur in the summer.
