I would have to agree with your statements and especially the ones in
relations to giving more specific information.

Since I worked at a computer repair center for 11 years and then on my own
since I have run into a LOT of people that would write very simple things
on the service form like: "system wont work" or "it doesn't work"
When I would put these systems up on the work bench would find they would
boot fine and then I would find myself calling the customer to grill them
for more information.

So really the more detailed information is useful in almost every aspect of
a computer related question in regards to hardware, software, or O.S.
