Correction: sys admin documentation is related to software obviously.

Hello everyone!

Does texinfo suit other works that are not software-related like sys
admin documentation, lectures, long essays, fictional/non fictional
books? From what I've read in the manual so far, it is possible to
produce some of them but would you recommend it? Chapter 1 states:

If not, what markup do you prefer for works that are not
software-related, without missing most of the good things texinfo

Thank you
