I am working with a coauthor on a paper, both using LyX. I'm on Linux + 
TeXLive; she's on Windows + MikTeX. We have had no problems with the 
collaboration, including using the change tracking features. So I agree 
with Joel that there is no need to mess with TeXLive on the Windows 
platform (where MikTeX is the more typical choice). Both parties just 
need to be sure they have any required packages installed.
