Reasons to use LyX instead of LaTeX
I started writing my thesis with LyX, and I'm getting addicted :) so far so good! As someone stated it's much easier (at least for me) to concentrate on the contents with LyX, and I can do everything I used to do with my text editor. Another big advantage is the immediate visual feedback when writing in math-mode; it's very helpful with long and cluttered equations. I like very much the table editor too, and the ability to roll up footnotes and floating objects.
