Isn't this getting too of-topic ?
As cool as lyx is, it is not written in mono and depends on a tex
system which makes it a bad candidate for the live-cd :/

BTW, .lyx files are not .tex files even if some parts are similar. Lyx
translates them into latex before doing anything else.
Thus lyx is needed to edit/compile .lyx files but they can be exported
into normal tex if you need to share them with non-lyx-users.

Best regards.
