I have this desire ot remove Windows form my computer and run entirely with GNU/LINUX. What keeps me "hooked" in to Windows is one program: Finale by Coda Music.  I was very happy to happen on to your web page.  I've downloaded the Windows version of Lilypond and to be frank, haven't been able to get past the first command -- I was never very good at DOS.  My question is, does Lilypond have the same capabilities as Finale and does it always operate with DOS commands?  Also, Finale lets me input music (note pitches) with a MIDI keyboard;  the quantitative values of the notes or chord are esblished with the number pad.  For example I can hold down a C7 chord on the piano and strike the #7; the notation will place a C,E,G,Bb in whole notes in the score.  Does Lilypond have a similar function? I am open to trying new things and believe in the GNU philosophy. 

Best regards,  Rick Tocce
