Math.

You can write *and* edit equations from they keyboard, and see them
real-time.  No mousing about.

Aside from those other programs not existing back when I started using LyX,
I tended to have matrices full of integrals.  Lots & lots of nested things
. . .

In practice, I wrote inL yX, and finished in LaTeX.
