LinuxFocus, February 2005.
Describes how to install and use LyX. The conclusion of the article states that: Certainly, if you only have to write your shopping list or a two-paragraph memo, using LyX is somehow overkill. But if you are looking at texts of more than 500 words where working with structure and crossreferences is a must, you can expect a serious degree of work relief from LyX.
- Dave Fancella: Hot LyX
NewsForge, September 22, 2004.
A review of LyX 1.3. The author concludes: LyX's primary benefit is that it takes the work of typesetting completely out of your hands. Since I spend a lot of time writing without knowing what the target format will be, I found LyX to be exactly the right tool at the right time for me. [...] Just as when I switched to Linux, I'm looking back and thinking, "Why did I waste my time with that other stuff?"

This article is a nice introduction about (La)TeX and (as many of these articles), ends telling that LyX is what you want if LaTeX frightens you.
- Richard Hillesley: See what you mean.
LinuxUser, February 2001.
Compares the WYSIWYG approach of common word processors with LyX's WYSIWYM approach. Conclusion: LyX and LaTeX point towards a more sensible future for document processing, taking advantage of the power of computing to simplify the job, which after all is how computers were sold to us in the first place.
- Evan Liebovitch: LaTeX: A diamond in the rough
ZDNet, January 3, 2001.
Another very positive article on LaTeX, which mentions LyX: The good news is that LaTeX, like Linux, is itself getting a friendly face. In LaTeX, as in Linux, the addition of the GUI is an enhancement and complement to, not a replacement for, the traditional way of doing things. The key here is LyX, a GUI front end that makes LaTeX look and work like a word processor.

- Gene Wilburn: Linux Inside: The TeX alternative
The Computer Paper, November 1999.
A short article about LaTeX, which includes LyX. The author notes: If you like the professional look of typeset documents but prefer the ease of use of a word processor, LyX may be your ticket. In fact, LyX is so nice that it may just become one of your most compelling reasons for ditching that other operating system and running Linux full time.
