re: is firmware always firmware?

response1: Firmware ... is code that is burned or loaded into more
permanent memory

response2: "Firmware" is usually a combination of hardware and software.

My response: "Firmware" is jargon--don't use this word except in very
limited internal-to-your-firm communication. Personally, I have no idea
what this word means and see no reason to learn it and would resent
instructions containing it. The customer is always right.
