Unfortunately, I'm working with too many LaTeX-experts, in those cases, 
my part is usually written in LyX then exported automatically by some

Recently, after a failing and frustrating attempt to write a joint paper

How many are left handed (was: How Many use linux)

2009-09-13 Thread Andrew Sullivan
You can see from the subject that there is an air of irrelevance about
this.

But it seems to me that knowing how many are left handed would,
naturally, lead to enhancements targetted at the left-hand community.

I answer that the customizability and portability of the LyX code base
is sufficient that a typing-able user on any modern desktop-target
platform is in a position to use LyX, and figuring out even rough
numbers for distribution on supported platforms is a distraction to
the LyX community.  This is true even if the user is left handed, or
non-Linux using, or whatever.

A far more useful discussion would be how many are dyslexic (a lot,

Seven percent. Documented at least as far back as the Christian bible.

A far more useful discussion would be how many are dyslexic (a lot,
especially if you count both major types), and if there are ways that
users of Lyx could make it easier for them.

Just to kick the ball out of bounds, how do you count cross-platform

When I first came across LyX (which goes back far enough that the only

outnumbered Windows users.  From list traffic, I suspect Linux is still 
prevalent (followed by Windows, then Mac), but the vastly is likely no

You could get a decent sense of the Windows and Mac populations from 
download statistics, but not so much with Linux, since Linux users will 
generally get LyX via their distro's packaging system, and we don't have 
any very good way to get that kind of info.


What we might hope is that, as people start to use more and more FOSS

 Maybe anyone with anything to say about Lyx could tag their subject with
 [Lyx] so I can just ignore the rest of this?

A lot of people on the LyX-Users list help others with problems, and I think 
an idea of the breadth and distribution of OS's used with LyX is interesting 
and valuable to those people. I'd imagine LyX installation on Windows has 
totally different challenges than those on Linux. Until this informal poll, I'd 
always assumed that 90% of LyX users were on Linux. Now I know better. Until 
this poll I never knew of one specific person using it on OS/X. Now I do.

I've always assumed that fraction was about 4/5 but never examined that

Just to start the ball rolling, I've always used LyX on Linux (since 2001) and 
am currently using it on Ubuntu 9.0.4.

I've used Lyx on Linux since 1999.  Wrote a thesis, a few papers, and numerous
resumes and cover letters.

I also use it predominantly on Linux, but occasionally use it on Windows, too. 
Have used LyX since, about, oh, 2000, for letters, articles, notes, and a 
dissertation.

Just to kick the ball out of bounds, how do you count cross-platform 
users?  I have it on one XP box and two Ubuntu boxes, and I use it 
heavily under both OSes.


When I first came across LyX (which goes back far enough that the only 
Windows version was a port that required Cygwin), Linux users vastly 
outnumbered Windows users.  From list traffic, I suspect Linux is still 
prevalent (followed by Windows, then Mac), but the vastly is likely no 
longer true.

Given that it is free software and therefore nearly impossible to know
what the user community size is, knowing the relative sizes of
segments of the population seems to be a little ambitious.
