"There are lots of design discussions on the developers mailing
list. Occasionally, someone will object to how LyX is developing.
One thread on compiler requirements provoked Asger to write an
excellent description of the LyX Teams philosophy on compiler and
"If you need evidence that LyX is a significant application and
worth investigating further you might like to consider reading a
thread started by none other than Richard Stallman. Richard was
concerned about LyX's use of XForms. Perhaps as a result of this
we've seen renewed interest in porting LyX to Gtk and Gnome using
the excellent Gtk-- toolkit."
"The users mailing list allows users to support one another,
thereby, forming a pool of community knowledge. Perhaps our most
valuable asset in this regard is Herbert Voss. Herbert seems to
have an answer for every question that involves problems with LaTeX
or LaTeX packages. He even has a LyX Tips page. Thanks
