Since screencasting, demos and tutorials are becoming a pretty
consistent part of my job duties as a "tech writer", I'm wondering
which tools all of you are having the best experience using?

I personally prefer Captivate.
I haven't used Mimic.
I'm not fond of Camtasia.

Preferences? And what are your thoughts about this role in our field?
