The Atari 800 with the BASIC cartridge is the ultimate for tech writer. Using
anything else is stupid, wrong, and perverted. Only nazis, baby squishers, and
perverts use PCs. Only communists, satanists, and drug fiends use Macs.
You need to get yourself an illogical emotional attachment to hardware right
away if you plan to survive the action-packed world of tech writing. Lying
never hurts either.
Have a nice day. Don't eat hamsters.
