I am overwhelmed by the many helpful advises. For the time being I will
use my linux LyX and ask my colleague to use MikTeX, since at the start
I want him to be able to read all my lyx notes in which I collected the
results of new publications since the last edition in 2015. I remember a
note where TeXLive was recommended over MikTeX for some reason. I guess
this is no issue any more. I have to dig into the Github proposal for a
possible later use. Does John's advice to use identical versions of LyX
mean to use 2.3.3 (which I use) also under Windows? I did not find this
version for MikTeX.

I am working with a coauthor on a paper, both using LyX. I'm on Linux
+ TeXLive; she's on Windows + MikTeX. We have had no problems with the
collaboration, including using the change tracking features. So I
agree with Joel that there is no need to mess with TeXLive on the
Windows platform (where MikTeX is the more typical choice). Both
parties just need to be sure they have any required packages installed.
I have a colleague with whom I would like to write a book chapter.
I am under Linux, he uses Windows. Is the following advice
sufficient or should I mention more points?
This is the same advice I’d give. However, I’ve generally had bad
luck successfully installing TeXLive on Windows and still usually end
up with MiKTeX. You might want to be prepared for this contingency.

1- Installing TeXLive for Windows over Internet
use Custom install
