WIMP environment

WIMP environment: n. [acronym: `Window, Icon, Menu, Pointing
   device (or Pull-down menu)'] A graphical-user-interface environment
   such as X or the Macintosh interface, esp. as described by a
   hacker who prefers command-line interfaces for their superior
   flexibility and extensibility.  However, it is also used without
   negative connotations; one must pay attention to voice tone and
   other signals to interpret correctly.  See menuitis,
