For various reasons, I use Windows myself. And I have full respect for others making different choices. I don't think the LyX list should be used for negative description of OSes not used by oneself.
2: I see the point. If there are no negative side effects of upgrading to the latest version of MikTeX, I'd do the following: * Put in a LyX 2.3.0 installation link. * Start by checking if the latest MikTeX version is installed. If yes, proceed and install LyX 2.3.0 * If not, explain why, and point to a link (youtube, or whatever) on how the user can upgrade MikTeX and say "retry after you have upgraded MikTeX". Maybe a solution? B I have sent an e-mail a while back and told my experience with the current LyX approach and how problematic it is if one tries to update Miktex while running LyX setup program. I have tried it several times but never worked for me. I have recommended the above approach (or smtg similar) as well. In my opinion, developers should not put their valuable time into what they are doing right now; instead they should proceed with the above approach (which seems easier to implement) and concentrate on making LyX more compatible with MikTeXs current and future releases. (Sorry if what I said does not make sense as I am not a programmer.) BE
