I'd seriously question the "90% of TW use PC's" figure, but even it's
true that's hardly a reason to switch platforms. Both Word 6 and
Framemaker work the same on Wintel and Macintosh. In fact, the same
manual ships for both platforms. Use what you have, and enjoy. That
way you only have to suffer if your employer forces you onto a
machine you'd rather not use.
