Point-and-drool interface

(Or “point-and-grunt interface”) A parody of “point-and-shoot interface”, describing a windows, icons, and mouse-based (WIMP) graphical user interface. The implication, of course, is that such an interface is only suitable for idiots.
See for the rest of us, WIMP, drool-proof paper.
