Oops! I was actually going to say 1E4's.  100,000 is a lot.

I didn't realize that people had
installed these things for all undergrads to use, I figured it was more
something that would get installed for 10 or 20 grad students in a
particular research group or something. Of course, even if you've introduced
ten people to it, that doesn't mean all the rest of the undergrads are using

Obviously we just need to make LyX automatically send email to lyx.org
whenever someone opens up LyX for the first time (the same way we decide to
show the splash page). While we're at it, we could have LyX look through the
person's address book and email all their friends with an advertisement to
use the program!
