That all depends on who your end user is! Not all of us write documentation for word processing programs ;-) Some of us write technical documentation for how to use new programming languages, databases, or network software that require the user to understand file structures, parameter types, function calls, etc.

IMHO I guess what it boils down to is that some of us are better prepared to write to the highly technical audiences than others. It is what makes us stand out in the technical writing field and keeps our customers coming back to us.
