Meaning of MENUITIS

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

/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.
