Have seen my colleagues use its previous avatar, KTeXmaker2. Kile is for
KDE3 (correct me if I am wrong). It is a good ide like thing for LaTeX.
But, if one is accustomed to vim/emacs style of editors (lots of
customisations, user defined macros, etc), then these things do not help
there. But for a beginner it helps a lot. 

Reg. comparision with LyX, there should be none :-) LyX is supposed to
be a WYSIWYG frontend for LaTeX. As mentioned on Kile/KTeXMaker page, it
will never be a WYSIWYG frontend.
