  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
    A  list  from  which  the  user  may  select  an 
  operation  to  be  performed.  This  is  often  done  with  a  {mouse} 
  or  other  pointing  device  under  a  {graphical  user  interface} 
  but  may  also  be  controlled  from  the  keyboard. 
  Menus  are  very  convenient  for  beginners  because  they  show  what 
  commands  are  available  and  make  experimentating  with  a  new 
  program  easy,  often  reducing  the  need  for  user  documentation. 
  Experienced  users  however,  often  prefer  keyboard  commands, 
  especially  for  frequently  user  operations,  because  they  are 
  faster  to  use  In  situations  such  as  text  entry  where  the 
  keyboard  must  be  used  anyway,  having  to  move  your  hand  to  the 
  mouse  to  invoke  a  menu  operation  is  slow. 
  There  are  many  different  ways  of  presenting  menus  but  the  most 
  common  are  the  {menu  bar}  (with  {pull-down  menus})  and  the 
  {context-sensitive  menu}. 
  The  term  menu"  tends  to  be  reserved  for  a  list  of  actions  or 
  global  options,  whereas  a  "{list  box}"  or  other  graphical 
  {widget}  might  present  any  kind  of  choice. 
  See  also  {menuitis}.
