I wanted to take the chance provided by one of the periodic "thanks for lyx" messages that Steve sends :) to tell my own success story.
In like vein, I just finished a 60 page protocol document for a piece of highly configurable instrumentation. I spent less than 2 weeks on it. I could have used Word like my client thought he wanted and then milked it for another 2 weeks. :-) Just for the record, I used the article class. BTW, I not a professional tech-writer. I'm an electrical engineer who also writes mainly embedded firmware. While I have many painful memories of troff, I no experience to speak of with Latex. The point being, one can be productive with Lyx w/o being a Tex guru. Feeling adventurous, I pulled down the SVN version and used that because I wanted some of the new features not back-ported to 1.6.x. I suffered a few crashes, but was not able to make them consistent enough build a bug case. The few crashes were not often enough to interfere with my progress. Well done and thanks to the team who is working on Lyx2. Ray Lillard
