LyX ist actually the best writing environment and most advanced
document preparation system around.  It is not just a LaTeX-Frontend
but a document processor in it''s own right. I'll ditch any of AbiWord
or OpenOffice for using the, for writer's purposes superior, LyX.

Unfortunately, the Gtk/Gnome port is lagging far behind the Qt2 port.
The people responsible for the Gtk/Gnome port could definitely need a
helping hand (or two, or three, or even more) to make some serious
advance. See ""; for the states of
the respective ports.  People interested to get in touch with
the LyX people regarding Gnome2: 

If with some help a Gnome2-LyX could be realized, it could be a nice
boost for Gnome2 as a whole.
