60% FrameMaker (Mac)
25% FrameMaker (Win)
10% Word98 (Mac)---occasionally, for short docs or
when I need the outline feature
5% WinWord---only when I'm working onsite somewhere
and Frame isn't available

Note: I have worked in Word far longer than I've worked in Frame. I coach
client groups in Word techniques, and am considered a power user. But,
even when the deliverables must be in WinWord, I prefer to do the
development in Frame---especially if I'm being paid a flat project fee. It
takes much less time (average 30%) to do conversion at the end of the
project, rather than to work from scratch in Word. This isn't a case of
'people prefer what they're familiar with'. It's purely a matter of
efficiency and greed.
