Thanks for LyX

2010-09-09 Thread Steve Litt
Hi LyX developers and community,

I'm putting the finishing touches on the first draft of a 100K word book, and 
while typing I was thinking how wonderful LyX is, and how grateful I am for 
LyX. Unlike other writing tools, LyX ignores accidental double spaces or 
accidental double newlines. It never crashes except in on very specific math 
activity, so you just back up a lot in math. It never screws up your file. 

It's WYSIWYG enough to see what's what in the editing environment without 
compiling to PDF, but not so WYSIWYG to introduce code bloat and instability.

LyX is built for speed. I've had a 6000 word day using LyX, a couple 5000 word 
days, and several 4000 word days.

Thanks so much for this spectacular writing tool.

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. Next
Friday I finally have the public defence of my doctoral dissertation. It
has been written in LyX from scratch, and it's been a pleasure to do so.
And, while the content is very debatable, it looks seriously beautiful.
You guys appear in the acknowledgements and, as I guess you will not be
reading it anytime soon, let me copy here the relevant passage:

I would also like to thank the online community that has made the actual
process of writing and typesetting this dissertation so much easier, by
developing the software and helping newbies like me to undertand and
benefit from it. Among many others: the LyX developers that read the
LyX-users mailing list, André Miede for creating the beautiful LaTeX
syle I have used to typeset the dissertation, and Nick Mariette who
ported it to LyX. Details on how to get the amazing set of tools
provided by this group of incredibly generous people can be found in
page 229.

So, yeah, thanks for LyX.

Feeling adventurous, I pulled down the SVN version and

The few crashes were not often enough to interfere with

Well done and thanks to the team who is working on Lyx2.

Hi all,
I just wanted to thank the LyX team for the work they do. I have written 
my PhD thesis 2 years ago with LyX, and it never failed on me. Even when 
X crashed once (in a 6 month period), LyX managed not to loose a single 
letter of my work.

It may seem late to thank the team now, but since I have now an 
anti-spam email (thanks yahoo) and my thesis have been finally uploaded 
on the web site of the university, I thought better late than ever ;)
The pdf (acrobat-friendly) can be found at:
http://www-optics.unine.ch/publications/theses/Thesis_Ripoll.pdf

Cheers,
Olivier Ripoll.
PS: I know at least two other theses written with LyX at the same 
institute, one of which is also online now:

Hi

I would  like to join the applause for the lyx team. Although Lyx was not
around when I  did mine, I use it  very extensively for writing proposals
and just about everything else. I had years of latex and miktex before my
linux days.There is a world of difference when  you have to do
bibliographies and an index apart from all the other  productivity. Coming
to latex was a wonderful leap. Taking to Lyx is a whole new world.

The only problem is  when one has to talk to the rest of the world in .doc

There are times when there is no choice, for instance when someone wants to
add or edit what you have written. In practice in such cases, I used
lineno.sty
which prints line numbers on each line and allows people to suggest
changes by line number. However, there are many times when one would like
to be able to produce a word doc for others, but I do realize that word
does not have the wealth of formatting that we have in latex so its an
impossible
dream in all probability.
