Scientific Word is all GUI front end to Latex.  You do not need to even know 
any latex to use. Its been around since 1992.

One thing I really like about it, is that it includes a symbolic engine 
inside it. I can select an expression in the screen, and then select the 
operation I want to do on the expression, then the result is computed and 
output comes out right there where I have the mouse pointed after the 
expression is, and I can then use this result and continue typing.  It is in 
a way  a Mathematica in reverse.  Mathematica is a symbolic engine first, 
and typesetting second, while Scientific word is typesetting first, and 
symbolic algebra second.
