I downloaded LyX last night and so far have mixed reactions... I'm used to
editing WYSIWYG in NeoOffice. It's weird seeing the text spaced all
funky-like (non-proportional fonts or something like that) UNTIL you
decide to make it printable or PDF.
I'll spend a little time, though, and see if I can get used to it.
