menuitis

menuitis in Technology


/men"yoo-i:"tis/ A notional disease suffered by software with an obsessively simple-minded menu interface and no escape. Hackers find this intensely irritating and much prefer the flexibility of command-line or language-style interfaces, especially those customisable via macros or a special-purpose language in which one can encode useful hacks.
See user-obsequious, drool-proof paper, WIMP, for the rest of us.
