I am a big fan of LyX(I find typing up in TeX directly really annoying, I like being able to see my formulas), however are there any other programs that make it a lot easier to TeX too? I just want to see if there are others too so I can try them out. I am looking for LaTeX software which will work on Linux-Ubuntu.
(If it generates the PDF view directly that is a plus.. I know there is a paid versions that works that way)
