"User-friendly" has two meanings:

1. Considering the needs of users and addressing them in a direct
and non-intimidating way, and

2. Assuming that the users are morons, and giving them coloring books
instead of manuals.

You are using definition #1; your buddy is using definition #2.

Hope this helps,

-- Robert
