For most of us, "working" means more than booting.I don't think it's particularly broad. I look at it this way, if /everything/ else is doing what he wants, then it's working. Just because it's not configured correctly isn't the same in my mind. I suppose you can make a case for /not working/, but to me, this isn't something that is broken (ie NOT working). When you buy a new car is it working even though you need to adjust the seats and mirrors? Or the radio presets? Would you consider the car not working?Of course not. Even if I wanted the seats and mirrors preadjusted, I wouldn't expect it. I would expect to be able to find the adjustment controls and to use them. My inability to find or to use said controls would imply that the car was not working for me. That seems to be Mike Flannigan's situation. I deliberately avoided the word "broken".
I think you would agree that there's a big difference 'not working' and 'not working for me'. Not working generally means broken. It works for no one. Not working for me could mean it's broken, it could also be lack of user experience.
Maybe two sides of the same coin, but my father and I had this very discussion years ago. Granted, at the time I was just trying to get out of mowing on a technicality, but the arguments still apply. (My daughters have tried the same thing, actually.)
