At least, you have to know a little bit of the Latex philosophy, to 
understand why Lyx does the things the way it does. Specialy if you 
come from an WYSIWYG Processor, you will be surprised of some things 
and may not value them as strength of the Latex approach. 

Latex rules, specialy for laaarge documents.


PS. StarOffice in most points is as good as MSOffice, in some is even 
better (stability). And yes its FREE.
