Not really. I had a nightmare of a time getting LyX to work. I got it 
more or less working in the end only to discover that it was not what I 
was looking for. I have never used Alpha so I don't know how good a 
replacement LyX is. However, there are quite a lot of fiddles to get it 
working properly.

As I say, I have never used Alpha but my two preferred solutions for 
LaTeX based work on MacOS X are Pepper with TeXShop and Scientific 
Assistant. It might be worth looking at these.
