Description:

LyX is an almost WYSIWYG-frontend for LaTeX. It makes the power and typesetting quality of LaTeX available for people who are used to word processors. Since LyX supports LaTeX's concept of general mark-ups, it is even easier and faster to create professional quality documents with it than with usual word processors. It is also possible to use LaTeX commands within LyX, so nothing of LaTeX's power is lost.

You can extend the functionality of LyX by installing these packages:
* chktex: check for typographical errors
* gnuhtml2latex: import HTML documents
* groff: improved table formatting in plain text exports
* latex-xcolor: for coloured change tracking
* librsvg2-bin, inkscape: use the SVG image format in LyX documents
* linuxdoc-tools: export SGML LinuxDoc documents
* mythes-*: use the OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice Thesaurus
* noweb: import noweb files
* rcs: integrated version control
* sgmltools-lite: export SGML DocBook documents
* texlive-xetex, etoolbox: use the XeTeX typesetting system
* wv: import MS Word documents

5 I use it daily. I have used it for letters of a few pages, and for books of hundreds of pages. Producing a 200 page press-ready PDF with hundreds of figures and tables is extremely simple. Producing a 20 page report takes me about half the time I would take using MS Word because the formating simply takes care of itself.

5 At first I was like: "meh." But then I read the introduction and tutorial, after I was like: "Holy shit awesome!"

4 I like it but... it saves documents in ".lyx" format only. Therefore if you want to save a document in ".doc" format it will be impossible unless you know how to change it. But I personally don't want to get into it. I will better use another Word Processor.

4 Good. I use it to paste data (edit: special paste: plain text) into tables and then copy the code (view: fount code panel) to Texstudio.

5 Using it for my CV (moderncv template in texlive-latex-extra) and the occasional letter. The generated PDFs look far better than anything MS/Libre/OpenOffice could ever hope to create.

5 This is my favorite way to write/edit large documents. It is the best front end for latex and the most powerful tool out there for the creation of books, thesis, papers etc. You get the best of both worlds in terms of control and usability.

5 Superlative, no other accolade is appropriate: stands with the best that the Linux platform has produced, more than a word processor.

4 LyX is a remarkable tool which makes the muscles of the LaTeX system available for anyone. While there is no doubt it requires a bit of getting used to, your documents will be power user quality once you get into the mindset.

5 Need to navigate and edit a 50 thousand word document instantly? Lyx! In twelve years of using LyX I.ve never lost data, and I can't remember a crash. 'Nuff said.

5 El mejor editor WYSIWYM (Lo que ves es lo que quieres decir) para LaTeX. El trabajo se hace más productivo y los resultados son profesionales.

5 Since I found LyX I use it for almost everything. It's easy to use and produces very well presentable results. In some cases you need to dive into some messy details, but it's totally worth it.
