I've been working in a Marcomms group for the past couple of years and
recently we were reassigned to R&D. This presents us with not one but two
opportunities: (1) to get closer to our SMEs and gain a bit more respect
from them, and (2) to reconsider whether pc's are better, as good as or
inferior to Mac's for tech pubs for technical writing jobs. We've had the
Mac's because the Marketing types truly believe that Mac's are indisputably
superior to pc's for graphics design. But while we use graphics elements in
our technical documents, we're not doing color work or requiring high
definition, things that are of inestimable value for marketing pieces. Most
of our documents are prepared in Frame, Page or Word in the ratio of about

Question: Which platform is in the most common use and, consequently,
considered better for pure technical writing projects?
