Real word processing with Linux

There's supposed to be an almost-WYSIWYG TeX front end (or is it LaTeX?) 
that a lot of people swear by (as opposed to swearing at). It's called, I 
think, LyX, and I'm almost certain you'll find some discussion of it (and 
a pointer to it) in comp.os.linux.misc

SCO WordPerfect supposedly works, but would be expensive I think and 
requires some setup.

This may be heresy, but I don't think MS-WORD under Windows is a bad 
solution for a WYSIWYG word processor.....
