If your purpose is evaluating Unity, I'd suggest you try Unity for five 
hours in which you don't need LyX, or else load it on a different 
machine. If you're anything like me, you'll blow it right off the hard 
drive because it's nothing but frustration. Especially horrid is the 
menu structure, in which you have a few commonly used ones, and the 
rest all thrown into one bucket you need to rummage through.

I found that almost everything I did in Unity took minutes instead of 
seconds or half-seconds. It was an attrocious time-sink. If you're 
anything like me, a simple evaluation without LyX will reveal that 
Unity isn't for you.
