You might look at:

<<LyX is an advanced open source document processor that encourages an 
approach to writing based on the structure of your documents, not their 
appearance. LyX lets you concentrate on writing, leaving details of visual 
layout to the software.
<<LyX runs on many Unix platforms, OS/2, and under Windows/Cygwin (this port 
requires an X server). It can also run natively on Mac OS X, thanks to the 
Qt/Mac library.
<<LyX produces high quality, professional output -- using LaTeX, an 
industrial strength typesetting engine, in the background; LyX is far more 
than a front-end to LaTeX, however. No knowledge of LaTeX is necessary to use 
LyX, although it will give a user more power.
<<LyX is stable and fully featured. It has been used for documents as large 
as a thesis, or as small as a business letter. Despite its simple GUI 
interface (available in many languages), it supports tables, figures, and 
hyperlinked cross-references, and has a best-of-breed math editor.>>


1) Before the 'explosion' i have noted the dreaded two letter La- prefix 
there, but I can't imagine the bridges they had to cross to get where they 
are as being that different ... ...

2) It was my failure to be able to understand the LyX GUI that lead me to 
'raw' Tex use and where I am today (wherever that is ... )  !
