The document editor that is revolutionary and breaking the typewriter paradigm.

Today, I thought I will try something different for word processor requirements, for non-text files. For text  files, vi rocks for me 🙂

So, I tried LyX, here is the description of the editor:

Description: LyX is a modern approach to writing documents which breaks with the
obsolete ”typewriter paradigm” of most other document preparation
systems.  It is designed for people who want professional quality
output with a minimum of time and effort, without becoming
specialists in typesetting.  The major innovation in LyX is WYSIWYM
(What You See Is What You Mean). That is, the author focuses on
content, not on the details of formatting. This allows for greater
productivity, and leaves the final typesetting to the backends
(like LaTeX) that are specifically designed for the task.  With
LyX, the author can concentrate on the contents of his writing, and
let the computer take care of the rest.

And heres the screenshot:

The interface is quite intutive. I think I would like this document processor. LyX supports exporting the file in text format, dvi, latex, pdf and ps to name a few. It inherently supports latex too. Quite interesting.
