[SciPy-user] New Lyx Version eas(ier) to install on Windows.

I like Lyx, but one of my colleagues said to me 'why don't you just use
latex directly? It's not that difficult'... So I tried latex (with
winedt) and it runs just fine. I still haven't quite got my head around
how Lyx and latex work together. For example, if I use lyx can I hack
the latex code easily?

There is a new Lyx Version that works on Windows quite well -- windows
is now officially supported.

So, those of you who have been hesitant to try LyX because it supposedly
doesn't work on Windows, have no more excuse ;-)

An executable installer is available at http://www.lyx.org

The setup process guides you through the other programs that are needed
(ImageMagick, Ghostscript, a minimal shell like minsys, Python, and
optionally Perl)  to run lyx well.
