In answer to all your questions I can only provide a broad stroke: The
learning involved in PC-based work is "a *lot*." You can decide to *be* a
Mac-based tech writer, then look for work that fits, rather than trying
to be fully versed in both platforms. On the other hand, I would *guess*
that, because there are many many more PC programs on the market than Mac
ones, that it would be easier finding work in the PC world. Nevertheless,
if you specialize in Mac, you will eventually find the work that fits -- and
will be happier specializing in something you already have a head start on!
