LyX - the open source document processor

What is LyX? LyX is an advanced open source document processor running on many Unix and some non-Unix platforms. It is called a "document processor", because unlike standard word processors, LyX encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance. LyX lets you concentrate on writing, leaving details of visual layout to the software.
